A woman accused of threatening the lives of a Mahoning County judge and members of his family has been arrested at her Chicago home and brought to the Valley to face charges.

Linda Crawford, 61, was arrested on a secret indictment charging her with two counts of menacing by stalking, and two counts of extortion.

Last month, Mahoning County Court Judge Scott Hunter told investigators that he received a call at his Austintown office from Crawford, who was described as a former client.

According to a police report, during that conversation she began yelling at Judge Hunter, telling him that he was dead, his family was dead, and that she would nail him to the ground and burn him.

Crawford is being held in the Mahoning County Jail awaiting a court hearing.

In late 2015, Crawford was charged with burglary and violating a protection order for breaking into the home of Phantom Fireworks CEO Bruce Zoldan.
