Kansas man convicted of threatening to kill Republican congressman, could face 10 years in prison

A federal jury has convicted a man who admitted to making threats against the life of a Kansas congressman. 

Chase Neill, 32, was found guilty of threatening a public official after leaving a menacing voice message for Republican Rep. Jake LaTurner.

Neill — a native of Lawrence, Kansas — was arrested last year after leaving the voicemail at LaTurner’s office on June 5 in which he stated, ‘I will kill you.’

Neill was found guilty after representing himself at the trial, where he claimed he was a messenger from God. 

While he did admit to leaving the voice message, Neill explained that he was warning LaTurner that he would be struck down by the almighty, not threatening to kill him personally.

‘This is not me saying, ‘I’m going to chase you down with a knife,’ or something like that,’ Neill said.

Despite being found competent enough to argue in his own defense by the federal judge, Neill spent significant time in court discussing his concerns about aliens and malicious magic.

Neill faces up to 10 years in prison and a fine up to $250,000.

Pamela Neill, his mother, told reporters through tears, ‘He never raised a hand on anybody.’
