A Rhode Island man is facing sentencing this week for threatening to bomb a Connecticut company.
Shaneel Jain of Cumberland is to be sentenced Thursday in Hartford federal court. A jury found Jain guilty in July of making a bomb threat against Wallingford-based Z-Medica Corp., which makes a medical agent that rapidly stops bleeding.
Jain made telephone calls from India in 2010 in which he threatened to bomb Z-Medica within 24 hours and said he was a terrorist. Jain was involved in a lawsuit with Z-Medica based on their prior business relationship.

No bomb was found.
Jain's attorney says it was aberrant behavior and his client is remorseful.
