(CNN) -- Sadie Holland, a judge on the Lee County, Mississippi, Justice Court, told CNN on Wednesday night that she received an envelope with a suspicious substance and a letter similar to the ones sent to the offices of President Barack Obama and Sen. Roger Wicker, a Mississippi Republican.
The letter arrived one week ago and originally tested negative for ricin. It was being retested Wednesday, Holland told CNN.
