Auxvasse man accused of threatening circuit judge
COLUMBIA (AP) — A 69-year-old central Missouri man faces a felony charge accusing him of threatening a circuit judge.
Jerry W. Wilkerson of Auxvasse was charged Friday with tampering with a judicial officer.
The Columbia Daily Tribune reports that Boone County sheriff's Detective Tom O'Sullivan says Wilkerson told staff at a Columbia hospital that he wanted to shoot 13th Judicial Circuit Judge Gary Oxenhandler.
Online court records don't list a lawyer for Wilkerson, who's being held on $100,000 cash bond.
