Delhi, NY (WBNG Binghamton) A woman accused of threatening Walton schools through Facebook postings is working on a plea deal with prosecutors.

28-year-old Jennifer Morris of East Branch is facing four felony charges of falsely reporting an incident.

The indictment said she circulated warnings in June that there would be an explosion at Walton schools.

She also faces seven counts of aggravated harassment for communications sent to six adults.

Morris was in Delaware County Court on Monday for a possible plea deal, but her defense attorney, Andrew Puritz, requested an adjournment.

Her next appearance and possible plea has been rescheduled for Sept. 16, at 1 p.m. in Delaware County Court.

Morris remains in the Delaware County Jail with bail set at $20,000.
