PHOENIX — A new trial date has been set in Arizona for a New York man charged with threatening two national TV commentators via Twitter over their coverage of the Jodi Arias murder trial in Phoenix.

David Lee Simpson's trial is now set for July 14.

The 48-year-old from Bath, New York, has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Authorities say Simpson was in New York when he sent the tweets, but Arizona asserted jurisdiction since the threats were made against individuals for conduct during their coverage of a case that was occurring in Maricopa County.

Authorities also say both TV personalities — Nancy Grace and Jane Velez-Mitchell — were in Arizona at times.

They're hosts on Turner Broadcasting's HLN network and were covering the Arias trial.

Investigators say Simpson also threatened an Arizona woman.

A New York man accused of threatening two TV commentators via Twitter over their coverage of the Jodi Arias murder trial in Phoenix was sentenced Monday to probation for his guilty plea to attempted computer tampering.

Authorities say David Lee Simpson, of Bath, was in New York when he sent the tweets, but Arizona asserted jurisdiction since the threats were made against people for conduct during their coverage of a case in Phoenix.

The TV personalities -- Nancy Grace and Jane Velez-Mitchell of Turner Broadcasting's HLN network -- were in Arizona at times covering Arias' 2013 trial.
