NACOGDOCHES, Texas (AP) - A now-former Stephen F. Austin State University student is facing charges that she posted signs on and near campus that threatened a massacre.

Jennifer Grant of Palestine was released today on $7,500 bail after her arraignment on a charge of felony terroristic threat.

Grant's a tenant of an off-campus apartment complex called The Grove, where several signs appeared April 16. They warned that "10 people will be killed and shot at The Grove."

It was the second anniversary of the deadly Virginia Tech massacre.

An arrest affidavit obtained by KTRE-TV indicates the 20-year-old had been given three extensions on a presentation that was due in a class the day the signs were posted.

No attorney information was available for Grant. An SFA spokesman says she's withdrawn from the school in Nacogdoches.

Conviction on the third-degree felony charge carries a prison term of 2 to 10 years.
