Man fined for threat to kill ex

NASSAU- A jealous man threatened to kill his ex-girlfriend because he thought she was sleeping with another man.

Brandon Fisher, 34, Providence Avenue, phoned the woman on August 5 and asked if she was sleeping with anyone.

When she didn’t answer, he said he would kill her.

The woman reported the matter to police and they arrested him.

Fisher pleaded guilty to threats of death at his arraignment before Magistrate Samuel McKinney.

He asked the court for leniency, saying he needed to control his temper.

The magistrate said a threat to kill was not to be taken lightly.

Taking into account Fisher’s guilty plea, the magistrate fined him $1,500 fine. If he doesn’t pay, he’ll spend a year in prison.

Additionally, Fisher’s been placed on probation for two years. He’ll serve nine month for violating his probation.
