DETROIT (AP) - An Illinois man has pleaded guilty to posting online threats on the same day as the Boston Marathon bombing.
   
The U.S. attorney's office in Detroit says Rodney Termini made the plea Thursday.
   
According to prosecutors, the 47-year-old Oglesby, Ill., resident posted two threatening messages to the Facebook page of shipping company Con-Way Freight shortly after the April 15 bombing in Boston.
   
Termini was a contract worker at Con-Way Freight's facility in LaSalle, Ill.
   
His first post said he "took care of the Boston Marathon" and then would "take care of Conway in Michigan And LaSalle." The second post read that there was a "bomb at one of your facilities, have fun finding it."
   
Termini faces 12 to 18 months in federal prison when he's sentenced on Nov. 21.
