WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ A Hutchinson man who sent two letters to a Kansas mental hospital threatening to kill President Barack Obama has been sentenced to two years in federal prison.

U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom says 27-year-old Michael Scott Ramsey was sentenced Monday in Wichita. He pleaded guilty in March.

Grissom says Ramsey delivered letters on July 1, 2009, to Larned State Hospital saying he was going to kill the president. In one of the letters he said ``this is Michael Ramsey telling you this.''

Ramsey received a mental evaluation at a federal detention center in Los Angeles, where experts found there was no evidence he had a mental disorder.
