MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -

A death threat against Mayor AC Wharton lands a Memphis woman behind bars.

49-year old Hattie King is charged with aggravated assault and aggravated stalking.

Police say she called a City of Memphis legal advisor, upset about an ongoing dispute with the city.

During the call King said if she had to kill the Mayor to get her money she would.

The legal advisor believed her threat to be credible and called police.

She's being held on $5000 bond and is expected in court on April 26th.
