PHOENIX (AP) - A New York man accused of making online threats against cable newscasters because he was upset with their coverage of the Jodi Arias trial is now in Arizona.

The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office says officers have transported 48-year-old David Lee Simpson, of Bath, N.Y., to Phoenix.

He was booked into jail Wednesday evening.

Simpson was previously indicted in Arizona on three counts of computer tampering and two counts of stalking.

He's also accused of threatening a Phoenix woman who defended anchors Nancy Grace and Jane Velez-Mitchell online.

Court records indicate Simpson does not yet have an attorney.
