BELLA VISTA, AR--A Bella Vista man, accused of threatening to kill a Benton county judge, is behind bars. Deputies arrested Ricky Witcher January 10th on charges that include suspicion of first-degree terroristic threatening. According to the affidavit, he became angry when a process server gave him court papers outside of his workplace in Bella Vista. When the server told him the court papers were from a circuit court judge, deputies say the suspect then said he'd like to 'put a bullet in his (expletive) Head' and kill him. The affidavit also says Witcher told the server that the judge and two others needed to be killed. Hes scheduled to appear in court next month.
