A suspended chef who threatened to burn his boss’s house down and kill her partner had his sentence further deferred.
Stewart Burne-Jones, of Helmsdale Crescent, sent Claire McLaren a series of Facebook messages as well as a picture of her front door on Happyhillock Road on April 4.
He said in one of the messages: “I don’t want to set the world on fire but your house will do just fine.”
Defence solicitor Stuart Hamilton said the 33-year-old had drunk a “considerable” amount of alcohol and was “genuinely shocked” to read the messages he had sent.
Sentence was further deferred until next month for reports.
