ROYAL OAK, Mich. (AP) -

A 47-year-old Detroit-area doctor faces charges after death threats were made to a county prosecutor and other court officials.

Dr. Kumar Singh was arraigned Wednesday in Royal Oak on 22 counts that include using a computer to commit a crime.

Genesee County prosecutor's office spokesman John Potbury says online threats were made against an assistant prosecutor who handled a 2013 drug case in which Singh appeared as a defense witness.

Threats also were made against Oakland County Prosecutor Jessica Cooper and a retired judge.

Singh is jailed on a $1 million bond. He was not represented Wednesday by an attorney. A Sept. 27 probable cause conference is scheduled.

Genesee County's prosecutor is handling the case after Cooper recused herself.
