A Delphi man is in custody for allegedly threatening to kill a Warsaw woman’s new boyfriend.

32-year-old Chad Turner was booked into the Kosciusko County Jail at 1:13 p.m. June 15 for intimidation, a level 6 felony. His preliminary bond was set at $5,250.

The woman tells Warsaw Police she had been receiving threatening text messages from Turner. She said Turner told her he was going to be in Warsaw on June 15 and he was going to shoot her new boyfriend in the face.

Police found Turner in the Kosciusko County Justice building. Turner signed a consent form that allowed officers to take possession of his cell phone and look for threatening messages.

In a search of Turner’s phone, officers found a text similar to what the woman described.

Turner told them he knew he placed the woman in fear by sending her a message saying he was going to kill her new boyfriend with a gun. He also said he understood what he did was against the law.

Turner’s initial hearing is August 9.
