Mariano Farrington, 45, had his bail revoked after he breached its conditions, following his arrest that stemmed from an incident that occurred on December 5.
Farrington was on bail for a matter that occurred in September 2016, where he was charged with common assault.
In an appearance yesterday, December 12 before the Magistrate’s Court, Farrington pleaded guilty to the offences of criminal damage and making a threat to kill. He pleaded not guilty to a charge of burglary.
According to the crown’s details, outlined by Prosecutor O’Neil Simpson, following an argument between the accused and his ex-girlfriend over the phone and in person at her Pockwood Pond residence, Farrington damaged the lock on the door of her apartment to gain entrance.
Once inside, the court heard that he took a broom and attempted to beat the woman, but her loud screams scared him away.
The crown noted that both the accused and complainant were in a relationship for four years, ending in 2015. The court also heard that the woman had since moved on and is involved in another relationship.
Farrington, who is now detained at Her Majesty's Prison, will make another appearance before the court on January 30th 2017.
