Son of Del. Courthouse Gunman Remains in Custody

Posted:

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - A former Delaware optometrist will remain in custody pending a detention hearing on charges that he conspired with his family over several years to torment and stalk his ex-wife following a bitter divorce and custody battle that culminated in her death in a courthouse shooting.

David Matusiewicz made an initial court appearance Monday following an indictment last week that accuses him, his parents and his sister of conspiring to spread false information about Christine Belford and stalking her with intent to "kill and injure and harass and intimidate."

Matusiewicz's father, Thomas, shot and killed Belford and another woman in the lobby of the New Castle County courthouse in February before taking his own life.

A federal magistrate ordered that David Matusiewicz remain in custody pending a detention hearing next week.
