Federal prosecutors say a former Army soldier told authorities he planned to kill President Barack Obama and former President Bill Clinton after he was arrested in a hostage standoff at a Georgia military hospital.

Charges filed in federal court Tuesday identify the suspect as Robert Anthony Quinones. Authorities say he's the former soldier who took three employees hostage Monday at Winn Army Community Hospital at Fort Stewart. No one was injured.

Besides charges related to the hospital standoff, court documents say Quinones told investigators after his arrest Monday that he planned to kill Obama and Clinton. He is also charged making threats against them.

The court documents say Quinones was discharged from the Army in February.
