Man threatens anchors over Jodi Arias coverage

PHOENIX -- Arizona authorities say they've arrested a New York man accused of making threats on Twitter against two Turner Broadcasting anchors who infuriated him with their coverage of the Jodi Arias trial.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio says 48-year-old David Lee Simpson of Bath, N.Y., was infatuated with Arias and became upset by comments made by Nancy Grace and Jane Velez-Mitchell.

Simpson was booked into jail in Phoenix Wednesday evening. He was previously indicted in Arizona on three counts of computer tampering and two counts of stalking.

He is also accused of threatening a Phoenix woman who defended Grace and Velez-Mitchell online.

Court records indicate Simpson does not yet have an attorney.
