Attorneys for a Mississippi man who was briefly charged with sending ricin-laced letters to the president and others are encouraged by discussions with federal authorities about repairing or replacing their client's home, which was heavily damaged during a search by investigators.

Christi McCoy, an attorney for 45-year-old Elvis impersonator Kevin Curtis, said Monday that she and another attorney had spoken with the FBI and the U.S. Attorney's office about their client's "uninhabitable" home.

She said a letter she wrote federal authorities "was well-received and we'll be working with the FBI to get all his property returned and get his property repaired."

Curtis was once charged in the mailing of poisoned letters to President Barack Obama, U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker and a Mississippi judge, but the charges were later dropped and another man was charged.
