A DUNFERMLINE man made threats to petrol-bomb the home of his former partner.

Kieran Smith also threatened to do the same to the homes of her relatives and to assault her new partner.

Kieran Smith, 22, of Barrie Street, appeared in the dock at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He admitted that on March 16-17, he sent a message to his ex-partner in Ballingry which was of a grossly offensive or indecent, obscene or menacing character by making a threat to assault her partner and to petrol-bomb her house and the houses of her family members.

Sentence was deferred by Sheriff Charles MacNair until July 17.
