A Montgomery County man accused of sending a poison-laced birthday card to a romantic rival had a strange message outside of the courtroom.

Nicholas Helman waived his preliminary hearing Thursday.

He addressed TV news cameras after the hearing.

"Woody, cheer up.. and Ms Woods is a power-controlling control freak. And you're not a liar," he said.

It's unclear to whom Helman is referring.

Helman is charged with sending a card laced with ricin to his ex-girlfriend's new boyfriend in March.

Charges including attempted murder and risking a catastrophe have been forwarded to court.
