COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- A day after two high school football players were convicted of raping a 16-year-old girl, authorities arrested two Ohio girls suspected of making online threats against the accuser.
Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine said the girls arrested Monday posted threatening comments on Twitter on Sunday, the day the players were convicted in Steubenville. One of the messages was later reposted on Facebook.
The rape case brought international attention to the small city of 18,000 and led to allegations of a cover-up to protect the Steubenville High School football team.
Steubenville police Capt. Joel Walker said the Jefferson County girls, ages 15 and 16, were being held in juvenile detention.
The older girl was charged with aggravated menacing for a tweet that threatened homicide and said "you ripped my family apart," according to the attorney general's office. The girl is a cousin of defendant Ma'Lik Richmond, attorney general spokesman Dan Tierney said Tuesday.
A Twitter message from the younger girl threatened the accuser with bodily harm, leading to a menacing charge, the office said.

Jeepers. Is the entire town in-bred?
Cousin of “Ma’Lik”.....yeah.....
I don’t know if this has happened but for the victim’s safety... I hope her parents move and quickly. I don’t think she could ever return to school and go on with her life in that town. IMHO.
Such an multi-talented family - a rapist and a female thug as cousins. They both belong in prison.
That town is loaded with scum.........
Worse than that, our modern culture.
They are just being good brain washed liberals in the New Normal.
“That town is loaded with scum........”
Go watch the Tom Cruise move “All the Right Moves!” It’s about a PA town that’s dying just like Steubenville Steubenville’s only claim to fame was that it was the birthplace of Dean Martin.
Just a mirror of the future Democrat Party, My FRiend.
It’s called Stupidville for a reason.
When the town is called Stupidville by a certain former under aged porn performer (star and actress just aren’t the right words) - yes, that Traci Lords - you know your town has an image problem. I think CNN dredged her up for this story.
a rapist and a female thug as cousins
Why was Traci Lords going down on Steubenville?
Well, that didn't come out right.
Maybe it did...-
I didn’t check on demographics, but in terms of morals, they mirror our current Community-Organizer-in-Chief.
Inbred? Pretty much. The population is a fraction what it was when the steel mills were still open and all they have now is Friday Night Lights football and the one or two tourists a decade who want to see the town where Dean Martin was born. The victim’s hesitancy to go through with prosecution is explained by the threats she’s now getting from these local sluts, who probably feel jealous she was the one their heroes chose to abuse. River rats.
That movie has come to mind more than once.
Oh you knew exactly what you were doing. ;)
