Del. Court Shooter's Son Won't Fight Fed Charges


DOVER, Del. (AP) - The son of a man who killed two people at a Delaware courthouse before taking his own life does not plan to fight charges of violating his probation on federal kidnapping and fraud charges.

David Matusiewicz faces a hearing next week. But attorneys told a judge Monday that while Matusiewicz does not admit violating his probation, he will not contest the charges.

Instead of an evidentiary hearing with witness testimony, the government will offer its proof and attorneys will then argue over sentencing.

Matusiewicz was arrested Feb. 11 after his ex-wife, Christine Belford, and a friend, Laura Mulford, were killed by his father, Thomas, before a scheduled child custody hearing.

David Matusiewicz pleaded guilty to fraud and kidnapping in 2009 after taking his three daughters to Central America.
