A 26-year-old Cherry Hill woman was charged Wednesday with threatening to kill New Jersey Assemblyman Angel Fuentes.

Naomi Montgomery is accused of sending an e-mail claiming that she had purchased a gun with the intention of killing the one-term Democratic Assemblyman and former Camden City Council president, according to the Camden County Prosecutor's Office.

On Tuesday night, state troopers arrested Montgomery and searched her Cherry Hill home. They found no weapon.

The e-mail was given to police by Fuentes, 50, who issued a statement Wednesday night saying he had done so "for the safety of myself and my family."

Montgomery has been charged with making terroristic threats and on Wednesday evening was being held in Camden County jail on $75,000 bail. She has been ordered to undergo a psychiatric evaluation.
