Solicitation to Commit Murder Charges Based on Chat Room Suicide Plan

Oregon man was arrested on charges of solicitation to commit murder after his chatroom enticements of more than 20 women to simultaneously commit actual suicide on like on Valentines Day were reported to the police.  Some of the women had children who, according to the chat room transcripts, were also to be killed.  The police are holding out the possibility that it was a joke of some kind.
