Federal prosecutors are beefing up their case against Web radio talk show host Harold "Hal" Turner, charged with encouraging listeners to murder three federal appellate judges. In Turner's retrial, which starts next week in New York, prosecutors plan to call those judges to the stand. Turner was indicted after he posted Internet messages that said the judges "deserve to be killed" for allowing a Chicago handgun ban to stand. Turner has argued that he's just a shock jock exercising his First Amendment rights.
