Ricin-Sending Texas Zombie Woman Gets Plea Deal

Walking Dead and Vampire Diaries bit-player Shannon Guess Richardson, who was charged with threatening the president and mailing threatening communications after trying to frame her husband for attempting to poison President Obama and Michael Bloomberg, has reached a plea deal with federal prosecutors, according to documents filed on Thursday. (She is not to be confused with one of the characters in this year’s other bizarre ricin case, where an accused child molester and tae kwon do instructor tried to set up his organ harvestingobsessed Elvis impersonator nemesis for a similar crime.) The details of Richardson’s arrangement with the authorities have not been disclosed, but we’re sure there’s something weird in there.
