Looks like the Manistique man accused of making terrorist threats and trying to extort city officials will head to trial with one less charge against him.
Peter Markham, 64, is charged with seven counts of felony extortion, one felony count of threat of terrorism, and two felony counts of using a computer to commit a crime.
Recently, however, the judge granted a motion to dismiss one of the charges of using a computer to commit a crime, leaving only one.
Markham is expected to stand trial October 25 through November 5.
He remains lodged in the Schoolcraft County Jail.
