Western New York man David Lee Simpson, 48, was arrested after tweeting his plans to kill two HLN hosts, Nancy Grace and Jane Velez-Mitchell, after tying them to a tree nude, according to a July 24, 2013 Gawker report.
According to the website, Simpson was angry over comments made by Grace during the Jodi Arias Arizona murder trial.
He tweeted he wanted to strap both Grace and Velez-Mitchell, who also featured the Arias trial on her show, to a tree nude and then “slit their throats,” Gawker reports.
He reportedly quit his job at a Bath auto repair shop and was headed to complete the task when he was pulled over by local police who found a bevy of weapons in his vehicle.
Simpson reportedly had two guns, a knife, ammunition, handcuffs, zip ties, a police radio, and binoculars in his car when detained by police last week.
According to Gawker, Simpson has been indicted by a Phoenix grand jury on felony charges of computer tampering and stalking.
