PHILADELPHIA — District Attorney Seth Williams said Tuesday he intends to file charges against a blogger who created an anti-police Facebook page supporting the two suspects accused of killing Police Officer Moses Walker Jr.

The blogger, Joshua Scott Albert, 26, created at least two other Facebook pages Tuesday: "Kill John McNesby," the president of the local Fraternal Order of Police, and "Kill Seth Williams."

Williams, who said he has received threats before, said he was disgusted by the "I Support Chancier McFarland & Rafael Jones" page — which supported the two suspects in Walker's slaying. "At first blush, it seems it was actually possible he [Albert] was soliciting people to kill police," Williams said. "We're going to investigate that."
