A woman accused of threatening the lives of a Mahoning County judge and members of his family has been ordered to be held in jail without bond.

Officials arrested 61-year-old Linda Crawford at her Chicago home and brought to the Valley to face charges.

Crawford 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 court office from Crawford, who described as a former client.

According to a police report, during that conversation, Crawford began yelling at Judge Hunter. She told 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
