LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A Los Angeles federal judge has ordered a woman charged with making threats that caused 300 schools to be locked down in FLorida to be transferred back to that state.

Ellisa Martinez of New Port Richey appeared in a Los Angeles courtroom late Wednesday and waived her right to a hearing that could have allowed her to stay in California.

The judge remanded the 48-year-old Martinez to the custody of the U.S. marshal. She's expected to return to Florida immediately.

Martinez, who was arrested in Los Angeles late Tuesday, is charged with interstate communication of a threat to injure another.

She's accused of sending an e-mail earlier this month to a conservative talk show host and said "something big" would happen at a government building in Broward County, possibly a school.
