The New York
man who has been indicted for threatening to kill two CNN anchors has allegedly
confessed to tweeting about the plots to kill Jane Valez-Mitchell and Nancy
Grace. Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio says David Simpson's car had been
packed with guns, zip ties and a knife, and he was ready to leave New York for Georgia. And, Arpaio says the
murders weren't the only crimes he allegedly had in mind.
“When he did arrive in Phoenix
he made a statement that he built some pipe bombs, bombs, and planted these
bombs in a certain area in northern Pennsylvania,”
Simpson was upset with the news anchors over their coverage
of the Jodi Arias murder trial. A Phoenix
woman who defended the anchors also received a threatening tweet.
