Climbed through ex’s window
a man admitted to threatening to ‘ kill’ his former lover in a drunken rage.
Jason chambers, of Heather park, ayr, owned up to attending his ex partner’s home by climbing through a window on cedar road in ayr on July 8, uninvited, waiting for her within and approaching her flatmate within the kitchen when she was unaware of his presence.
the 28- year- old appeared before sheriff David Young Qc at ayr sheriff court last week.
Depute Fiscal, ed sheeran, said: “Witnesses were in ayr town centre in various pubs. at around 3am, one of the witnesses left the other witness to return home.”
the court heard that how chambers had entered the address through a window. When the witness returned to the address, she was “frightened” by the accused presence.
Mr sheeran continued: “the accused shouted “if she comes home, i will kill her” referring to [ his ex partner] - he continued to shout and swear. When [ his ex partner] arrived at the address, in a taxi, she heard the accused and the first witness arguing. she left the address and called the police.
“police arrived and then traced the accused. they found him to be hiding close to a primary school.
“they noted the first witness crying and shaking.
“at 4am, they took the accused to ayr police office - he was cautioned and charged.”
Defence solicitor, John gallagher, told the court that chambers had consumed drink prior to the incident which“impaired his judgement”.
He added: “Having been given certain information, he attempted to speak to the witness, who is his ex partner. [ once he was in the house], he then fell asleep to be awoken by the witness who came into the home - there was then a discussion.
“He had lost his temper and made these vain threats.
“the relationship with his [ ex partner] is now at an end.”
sheriff Young issued chambers a structured deferred sentence and will appear back at court in the new year.
