A Houston woman, who wrote a letter to US President Barack Obama in which she threatened to kill him, was indicted by a US court, a media report said.

Denise O'Neal, 57, was indicted this week, Xinhua reported Wednesday citing the Houston Chronicle report. However, the report did not say the exact date of the indictment.

O'Neal wrote and sent the letter via US Mail on or around Nov 28, 2012. The letter, described as "long, rambling, and incoherent" was postmarked on November 29.

According to her letter, O'Neal has a long history of mental and physical illness.
