    Syracuse, New York CNN — The Cornell University student accused of posting online threats to kill members of the university’s Jewish community appeared in federal court Wednesday and was ordered to remain behind bars for the time being.

    Patrick Dai, a 21-year-old junior at the Ivy League school, was arrested Tuesday and charged federally with “posting threats to kill or injure another using interstate communications,” the US Attorney’s Office for New York’s Northern District announced. The charge is punishable by up to five years in prison.

    Dai appeared in a Syracuse courtroom wearing an orange jail outfit and with his wrists shackled. He did not enter a plea.

    He responded, “Yes, your honor,” several times after being asked questions by the judge. Dai remained straight-faced throughout the hearing, which lasted about 10 minutes. His mother sat in the second row.
