Attempted reconciliation ends badly for ex-partner

A DRUNKEN attempt to win back his former partner has failed for one Warwick man, who resorted to calling the woman names and threatening to kill her.

The 41-year-old visited the woman's home in the early hours of July 14, after being released from the watchhouse after verbally abusing police.

When the woman asked the man - who cannot be named for legal reasons - why he was at her home, the man told her he just wanted to see her, despite being subject to a domestic violence order.

The woman noticed the man was intoxicated and told him to leave, causing the man to become agitated.

Police prosecutor Steve de Lissa told the court the man called the woman derogatory names and threatened to come back and "bash her head in and slit her throat".

He denied threatening to kill his former partner, but admitted to calling her names during an argument.

Solicitor Daniel Habermann conceded his client was "extremely intoxicated and carrying on like the village idiot who drank too much".

The man was fined a total of $1250 for the offences.
