The Associated Press
MADISON- A Marshfield man who allegedly plotted to kill a Madison Planned Parenthood doctor now faces federal charges.
The Wisconsin State Journal (http://bit.ly/HhcB98) reports federal charges were filed Wednesday against 63-year-old Ralph Lang.
Lang already was charged with attempted first-degree intentional homicide in Dane County.
He now also faces federal charges of attempting to injure, to intimidate and to interfere with persons participating in a program and activity receiving federal financial assistance.
An indictment alleges that his acts included the attempted use of a dangerous weapon -- specifically a firearm -- and an attempt to kill.
Police arrested Lang last May at a Madison motel after his gun discharged while he was loading it.
Lang has been in custody since his arrest pending a competency evaluation and hearing in federal court.
