(WBIR-Kingston) A Roane County man with a long history of fighting law enforcement is accused of threatening to kill his former attorney.
A grand jury issued a superseding indictment that adds a new count to Leon Houston's previous federal charge of possession of a gun while using illegal drugs.
Court documents show that Houston threatened to kill his former attorney, Jim Logan, during a phone conversation on February 10.
Logan represented Houston in a murder trial for the death of a Roane County deputy and his friend. Houston was acquitted in the case.
