A grand jury returned an indictment Thursday against Timothy Siangdun, accusing the 44-year-old of posting threats on the school's Facebook site as well as two others in August 2013.

WMU spokeswoman Cheryl Roland said Siangdun was an electrical engineering student at the time but no longer is a student.

Reached by phone, Siangdun declined to talk in detail about the allegations, saying it's a "long story."

Roland said Siangdun's alleged threats didn't lead to a public warning to people on campus because it was determined that he was miles away near Battle Creek.
