More charges have been leveled against the British man who made the Facebook threats in February that kept nearly 3,000 Warren County students out of school.The suspect, Reece Elliot, 24, remains held without bond in a South Tyneside jail awaiting his next appearance in court which is scheduled for Friday.He has been incarcerated since he allegedly threatened to come to a Warren County school and kill 200 students before killing himself. The threat came during a discussion on a Facebook memorial page for a local girl who was killed in a car accident.The source of the threat was tracked back to Elliott who was living with his mother in east England. The unemployed father of one was taken into custody two days after making the post and has remained behind bars ever since.His pleas for bond have been overruled and he is now scheduled to go before the Newcastle Crown Court.
