SENDING abusive messages to her former partner threatening to stab him and telling him he was "dead meat" proved costly for one Lochgelly woman this week.

Jenna Moffat, 33, of Grainger Street, appeared for sentencing at Dunfermline Sheriff Court on Wednesday.

She had previously admitted that on July 21 last year, at a house in Blamey Crescent, Cowdenbeath, she behaved in a threatening or abusive manner when she made a WhatsApp video call to her your ex partner and shouted and uttered threats of violence towards him during the call.

She also sent a WhatsApp text message to him on the same day uttering a threat of violence.

Depute fiscal, Dev Kapadia, said the former partner received a call from Moffat who made certain allegations which he denied.

She became angry and made threats to the man and later sent a message telling him he was "dead meat."

Solicitor, Peter Robertson, said his client genuinely believed the allegation to be true.

Sheriff James Macdonald said there seemed to be "a background" to the matter and fined Moffat £200.
