Re: A young father has been jailed for threatening to "slice" his own mother during a telephone tirade.<br />
Irate Michael O'Connell was on licence and had been banned from visiting his mother by a court order when he picked up the phone on August 16.<br />
Swansea Crown Court heard that the pair, who have a turbulent relationship, began to argue about her babysitting O'Connell's young tot.<br />
Prosecutor Helen Randall explained the conversation soon turned nasty.<br />
"He said to her: 'I'm going to slice you from your eye to your lips so whenever you look in the mirror you'll remember me. I'm going to throw a petrol bomb through your window.'<br />
The Penlan man went on: "I'm going to cut your face. I don't need a mother, I don't need you. I'm going to cut you open, I'm going to put a blade right in your stomach."<br />
The 22-year-old's two younger siblings were in the room with their mother and one caught part of the conversation on tape.<br />
He was arrested on September 6 but replied 'no comment' to questions in interview.
