Dillsburg man arrested for terroristic threats

Posted: Updated:

A York County man has been jailed without bail for alleged threats to kill his estranged wife and their children.

Todd A. Youngblood, 32, of Dillsburg, was charged with terroristic threats and harassment after he made the threats verbally and in text messages, according to police in Upper Allen Township, Cumberland County.

According to the criminal complaint, Youngblood told his estranged wife that he daydreams of killing their children while they are asleep, then shooting her in the abdomen so she would die slowly.

He allegedly told her that as she was dying, he would drag her from room to room in the house to show her the other murders he had committed, the complaint states.

During a text message conversation Sunday, Youngblood allegedly texted that he would get drunk and his vision was going to come true.

He repeated the threat in a phone call, and added he would kill his estranged wife's parents and her extended family, according to the complaint.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled August 18.
