Man gets jail time for death threat to ex-partner
A MAN'S death threat towards his ex-partner was a "serious" domestic violence offence, Maryborough Magistrates Court heard.
After their relationship started to break down due to drug use, a 32-year-old Toowoomba man called his partner to organise collecting his belongings.
The court yesterday heard he told the woman, "I'll be there soon and I'm going to kill you c**t".
Magistrate Terry Duroux said the man was trying to frighten and intimidate the woman.
"While I accept there is no actual violence, the words used is a serious example of a breach of a domestic violence order," Mr Duroux said.
The man pleaded guilty to four charges of breaching a domestic violence order.
He was convicted and sentenced to three months' jail with an immediate parole release date.
