A 28-year-old man has denied allegations that he sent death threats to the Premier.

Jared Gordon, of no fixed abode, pleaded not guilty in Supreme Court to sending David Burt a series of messages between October 2 last year and March 28 to demand unwarranted items and cash.

He also denied two counts of sending threatening messages to Mr Burt.

Prosecutors alleged on Wednesday that one message, sent on October 12, 2017, said: “Ignoring me asking for a budget is driving me to a point of wanting to tell you this to your face ... I would really put a hole in your head.”

Mr Gordon is alleged to have sent a message on March 28 that included a threat of “pulling you out of your house and chopping your head off with a hacksaw”.

Puisne Judge Charles-Etta Simmons adjourned the case to August 15.
