(CNN) — A New York man who investigators say was infatuated with convicted killer Jodi Arias threatened to kill HLN anchors Nancy Grace and Jane Velez-Mitchell, authorities said Wednesday.
The names of the anchors who appear on CNN’s sister network were released by the Maricopa County, Arizona, sheriff’s department after the arrest of David Lee Simpson, 48.
Simpson was arrested in Bath, New York, after his indictment last week by a grand jury in Phoenix on charges of stalking and computer tampering.
After he was indicted, “Simpson quit his job, and was driving out of Bath heading south when he was stopped by law enforcement,” according to a statement released by the sheriff’s office.
A search of Simpson’s car turned up several guns, shotgun ammunition, handcuffs, zip-ties, binoculars, a knife and a police radio, the statement said.
Simpson has waived extradition and will be taken to the Maricopa County Jail in Arizona this week, the statement said.
