FREMONT, Neb. (AP) — A Fremont man has been sentenced to prison for threatening to kill his girlfriend.
The Fremont Tribune reported that 39-year-old Gary O’Dey was sentenced Monday in Dodge County District Court. He’d pleaded guilty to making a terroristic threat and domestic assault.
Prosecutors say a woman told Fremont police April 19 that she and O’Dey had gotten into an argument the night before but she allowed him to stay in her basement while she went upstairs to sleep.
She told officers that she awoke to find O’Dey next to her. She said that before he struck her, he said: “If you didn’t have kids, I’d murder you.”
The judge gave O’Dey consecutive sentences of 20 to 60 months for the threat and a year for the assault.
