EAST GOSHEN — A Washington state man accused of sending a death threat via e-mail to QVC host Lisa Robertson will turn himself in to local authorities next week, a police sergeant said yesterday.
Christopher Nichols, 31, of Bellingham, Wash., was charged last week with making terroristic threats and harassment and stalking by communications, both misdemeanors. According to an affidavit, he sent the obscenity-laced death threat on Sept. 2.
Sgt. Duane Minshall of Westtown-East Goshen police said yesterday that local police had contacted Nichols' attorney in Washington to bring Nichols to Chester County. Minshall said that if Nichols did not give himself up to Chester County authorities, he would be extradited. Nichols has a preliminary hearing on Oct. 24 in District Court.
