Thirty-two-year-old Kenneth Royal Wheeler is charged with making interstate threatening communications after a tipster alerted police a posting on his Facebook page. It included a plea for people in Grand Junction to "kill cops" and "drown them in the blood of thier (sic) children."
The Denver Post reports that Wheeler's lawyer told a judge Thursday that Wheeler had eliminated everyone he friended on Facebook. The lawyer wanted the judge to suppress evidence from Wheeler's Facebook page.
U.S. District Judge William J. Martinez denied the request. Wheeler now has 20 Facebook friends.
