A SOHAM man who threatened to "kill" the husband of his former lover was ordered to carry out 60 hours of unpaid work by magistrates on Thursday.
Darren Kingsley Young, 38, of Station Road, told Tim Chapman that he would "kill" him, adding: "Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but I'll get you. Cambridgeshire is a small place."
The court heard how the wife of Mr Chapman had become involved with Mr Young after their relationship broke down.
Mr and Mrs Chapman got back together, however, and it was then that Young started to make threats.
Mr Chapman was outside his home in Lapthorne Court, Ely, on February 5 when Mr Young drove past in his car and shouted: "I am going to kill him. I am going to cut his head off."
Young pleaded guilty to a charge of using threatening behaviour at an earlier hearing. He also admitted breaching a 12-month conditional discharge imposed on December 8 last year when, three days earlier, he had driven to the Chapmans' home, thrown stones at the bedroom windows and shouted abuse. It was then that he made the "maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow" reference.

In his own defence, Young said: "The last four or five months have been very much out of character. I was in a very emotional state and have had a lot of help from my family in dealing with this.
"I want to move forward, I've met someone else and am moving forward."
Young was also ordered to pay £75 costs and £55 costs outstanding from an earlier hearing.
