A Dallas man is set to be arraigned in federal court Friday on a charge that he threatened online to kill President Barack Obama.

Brian Dean Miller was apparently upset over health care reform.

A criminal complaint says the 43-year-old man admitted to a Secret Service agent that he threatened to kill the president in the March 21 Craigslist post.

Calling for a revolution, he said in the post he was "dedicating (his) life to the death of Obama and every employee of the federal government."

Agents subpoenaed Craigslist and AT&T to track down the originating e-mail address.

Agents arrested Miller and seized his computer March 25. They found no weapons at his home.

If convicted, Miller faces a maximum five years in prison and $250,000 fine.
