Man Accused Of Threatening Anchorwomen Over Arias Trial Coverage

David-Lee-SimpsonAuthorities say they have 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, New York was infatuated with Arias and became upset by two female anchors' comments. 

Arpaio declined to name the two anchors because he says Turner Broadcasting asked his agency to not publicly identify the victims.  Still, he says one of them works out of Atlanta and the other out of New York.
