SPOKANE, Wash. —

The man accused of sending letters with the poison ricin (RY'-sin) to a Spokane post office was in federal court Tuesday for a bail hearing.

The lawyer for 37-year-old Matthew Buquet of Spokane said he waived that right and will remain in custody without bail while the case continues.

KXLY reports ( http://is.gd/OVxedc) Buquet was joking with his lawyer in the courtroom. He told the judge he understood the proceeding.

Buquet is charged with mailing threatening communication. Officials say it was a crude form of the poison and no one was hurt May 14 when postal workers intercepted two letters sent to the downtown post office and federal courthouse in Spokane.
