Detective: Man threatened judge, magistrate

CINCINNATI -- A man threatened to kill the judges who took away his children and said he knew where they lived, according to a court records filed in the case against him.

Johnny Moore, 47, faces two counts of aggravated menacing.

He led Juvenile Court Judge John Williams and Juvenile Court Magistrate John Coleman to believe he'd kill or seriously injure them, according to an affidavit filed by Hamilton County Detective Michael Stock.

"Given his violent past, both parties believe that he has the capability and purpose to follow through with the threats," Stock wrote.

A judge set Moore's bond at $1 million Friday morning.
