BOSTON (AP) — Kevin Spacey has asked a federal judge to imprison a Boston-area woman convicted of sending electronic messages that threatened to shoot, torture and disembowel the Oscar-winning actor.

The Boston Herald reports Spacey wrote a letter saying that the threats from 55-year-old Linda Louise Culkin, of Quincy, caused “eminent fear,” and asked that she remain in custody and “undertake intense psychiatric treatment.”

Culkin was scheduled to be sentenced Tuesday in Boston, but a judge sent her for a psychiatric evaluation. She pleaded guilty in November to charges including mailing threatening communications, and sending threats and false information regarding explosives.

Culkin’s lawyer in court documents says there is “no evidence” her client intended to carry out any threats, and asks for mental health care at a halfway house.
