Man threatened to kill ex-girlfriend, court told
A man allegedly threatened to slash his ex-partner's throat unless she dropped claims that he tried to strangle her, the High Court has heard.
Daniel Millar (39) sent text messages and made phone calls after he was arrested and questioned, according to the prosecution. Millar, of Annadale Crescent in south Belfast, denies charges of threats to kill and intimidation of a witness over alleged incidents on November 5.
Crown Counsel Nicola Auret said Millar’s former girlfriend had gone to police two days earlier to claim he assaulted her. He was interviewed and released pending a report into that incident, with no charges having been brought over it, the court was told.
But it was claimed during his application for bail that the woman then received menacing calls and messages.
During one conversation Millar allegedly said: “If you don't drop these charges I will kill you. I’ll slash your throat.”
Millar was granted bail with conditions including he has no contact with the woman.
