NY trial opens for accused actress-stalker

Yesterday started the Trial against Charles Nagel for stalking Kathryn. Actually I didn’t want to post about it, but my Kathryn News page produced over 10 new articles in the last 24 hours.

Here four interesting articles.
  1. Opening statements made in 'Law & Order' stalker case
  2. Erbe's ex-husband testifies in alleged stalker case
  3. Creep accused of stalking 'Law & Order' actress Kathryn Erbe online 'didn't act like ordinary fan'
  4. Prosecutor: Man harassed 'Law & Order' star

Here a few facts:
  • Charles Nagel of Philadelphia is charged with interstate stalking, stemming from his "obsession" with actress Kathryn Erbe, Assistant U.S. Attorney Allon Lifshitz told jurors in federal court in Brooklyn.
  • When Erbe tried to ignore Nagel, he grew angry and tried to confront her, the prosecutor said.
  • Defense attorney Robert Datner called his client "an interesting character" who meant no harm.
  • Nagel, who has pleaded not guilty, merely "went to a public place seeking autographs and photographs," the lawyer said.
  • Today Jonathan Erbe, Kathryn’s brother and Terry Kinney her ex-husband were in witness stand and spoke to the court.
  • Kathryn is due to take the stand today, 3rd of November.

I hope this whole process will be over as soon as possible. It’s incredible and inexcusable how this man treated Kathryn, Maeve and the whole family.


  1. I didn't know Kathryn had a brother.

    I'd rather wish they kept the trial from the public, too, but that's just a gut feeling of mine...

  2. I saw pictures of her sister and her mom, but just read about her brother.

    To read all the articles gave me a bad feeling, too. I hope it's over as soon as possible. Yesterday Kathryn and Mr. Nagel were in the stand. It should be quickly over.

  3. she has a brother and a sister. she's the oldest of three siblings. :)

  4. Poor Kathryn, and for the stalker to go after her daughter on Facebook is just unforgivable.
