PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A Philadelphia blogger faces multiple charges after he allegedly created Facebook pages encouraging the murder of two city police officials and another supporting two men charged with the murder of Philadelphia police officer Moses Walker, Jr.

The District Attorney’s office says 26-year-old Joshua Scott Albert faces two counts of criminal solicitation to commit murder, three counts of terroristic threats and three counts of harassment for the Facebook pages he created. One called for the murder of Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams, another called for the murder of John McNesby, the president of the Philadelphia police union.

Both pages were made two days after Albert had a page he created supporting the two men charged with the murder of Officer Walker removed in late August.

All the pages he created have been removed, including a page called “Kill Mitt Romney,” which is being investigated by the Secret Service.
