Guilty plea to kill threat

Southern Gazette (Belmont) - - FRONT PAGE -

VIC­TO­RIA Park man Gur­prect Singh has pleaded guilty to threat­en­ing to kill, in­tend­ing to harm and de­pri­va­tion of lib­erty of his wife and 14-month-old child at a home in the sub­urb about three months ago.

“I’ll record con­vic­tions,” Mag­is­trate Ed­ward de Vires said at Perth Mag­is­trates Court last Fri­day.

De­fence lawyer Steve Preece said Singh had a his­tory of men­tal illness and had been on a men­tal health plan, but was not on med­i­ca­tion at the time of the in­ci­dent.

Mr Preece re­quested a psy­chi­atric re­port be­fore sen­tenc­ing on Novem­ber 29. Mr de Vires agreed to it and a pre-sen­tence re­port.
