Judge Judge fatally shoots himself after a lengthy standoff with police. Hostages are safe

A judge arrested last week for threatening the mother of his child with a rifle, shot and killed himself early Friday morning, ending a tense 10-hour standoff. At one point, police begged him to flicker the home’s lights to show that everyone was unharmed and to release a 13-year-old girl.

When it ended, federal administrative law judge Timothy Maher was dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, police said. And the family members he held hostage inside the barricaded South Miami-Dade home — including the teenage girl — were unharmed.
