LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A Canadian man facing charges that he stalked the brother of actress Jennifer Lawrence has been ordered held without bond pending the resolution of his case.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Dave Whalin in Louisville on Wednesday concluded that 23-year-old Han Cong Zhao of Vancouver, British Columbia, has no ties to Kentucky and could be a danger to the Lawrence family or others if freed.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Joshua Judd says Zhao's case will be taken to a federal grand jury by mid-October.
Zhao is charged with interstate stalking and repeated harassing phone communications. FBI Special Agent Nicholas Zarro says Zhao sent hundreds of text messages and voice mails to Lawrence's brother, in some cases threatening him and the family.
The Oscar-winning Lawrence is a native of Louisville.
