A MAN who threatened to kill his girlfriend during an argument was yesterday fined $300 in the Magistrate’s Court.

Luckner Frazier was arrested after he threatened to kill the mother of his children on December 5.

He admitted the offence in a hearing before Assistant Chief Magistrate Subusola Swain.

The prosecution said that day, the complainant told police she and Frazier got into an argument at her place of work. The court was told that the accused threatened to take her life during the disagreement. Frazier’s threats placed his girlfriend in fear for her life and prompted her to file an official complaint with police.

The accused was arrested a short time later. In an interview with police he admitted to being involved in an argument but denied threatening his girlfriend during the disagreement.

As a result, Magistrate Swain accepted his guilty plea and fined him $300 or 30 days in prison.
