The Bath man indicted in Arizona on charges he made Twitter death threats against two national TV commentators over their coverage of Jodi Arias is set for a court appearance today
David Lee Simpson faces five felony counts related to Twitter threats against Nancy Grace and Jane Velez-Mitchell. They're hosts on Turner Broadcasting's HLN network who covered the Arias murder trial in Phoenix.
Investigators say Simpson also threateend a woman living in Arizona.. A judge entered not guilty pleas on Simpson's behalf.
Simpson was in Bath when he sent the tweets, but Arizona asserted jurisdiction since authorities say the threats were made against individuals for conduct during their coverage of a case that was occurring in Maricopa County, and that both TV personalities were in Arizona at times.
