Lawyer: Md. Man Threatened N.J. Detective's Family

Posted: Updated:

GAMBRILLS, Md. (AP)- A lawyer for a New Jersey detective charged with fatally shooting a fellow motorist during a roadside confrontation in Maryland says the detective's family was threatened.
 
According to court documents, a witness told investigators that the confrontation started when Joseph Walker's minivan cut off Joseph Harvey's car on Saturday. Harvey's passenger told police that Walker pointed a gun at them as the vehicles swerved at each other. The drivers got out and the passenger says he heard several shots. Harvey was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Walker's attorney says that Walker's wife and children were in the van and Harvey threatened to kill the family.
 
Walker, of Eastampton, N.J., is charged with second-degree murder and manslaughter. He's held on $1 million bond.
