BANGOR — A 27-year-old New York man is facing federal charges he stalked his wife at her parents’ Maine home by sending her a series of threatening text messages and comments that were posted on a social networking site.

Jason Fiume of Utica, N.Y., pleaded not guilty Monday to charges that he violated a protection order.

A trial has been set for February.

Court documents say that in June, his estranged wife and her family in Kennebec County began receiving what are described in court documents as “nonstop” phone calls from Fiume. He is also alleged to have sent almost 100 electronic messages.

The Bangor Daily News says that in some of those messages he allegedly threatened to kill his wife.

Fiume is being held without bail.
