An Arizona man who left a message telling House Speaker Nancy Pelosi “I’m coming to kill you," was convicted Thursday, federal prosecutors said.

Steven Arthur Martis, 77, of Bullhead City, was convicted on one count of communicating an interstate threat, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Arizona said Friday.

Martis left the voicemails with Pelosi's office on Jan. 17.

One contained the threat to kill Pelosi, D-Calif., and the other said “you’re dead,” according to a criminal complaint.

Martis' attorney, Dave Eisenberg, said Martis will be retried on those counts after the jury did not come to a unanimous verdict.

The maximum sentence on the count is five years in prison.

Eisenberg said he will advocate that Martis, who has been held since his February arrest, is sentenced to time served. »
