A 26-year-old man was sentenced to two years in prison for threatening to behead, hang and burn his mother, according to a decision made by the Amman Criminal Court Sunday.

According to the court, the accused already had a criminal record, including a total of 86 different types of crimes, and had a severe drinking problem.

During the incident, the perpetrator started beating his younger brother, giving him a nosebleed.

He then proceeded to break items inside their household.

When the situation got out of hand, his mother decided to report the incident to the police, which led the accused to threaten her in an attempt to stop her from seeking help.

According to the report, he had threatened to behead her, hang her, and burn the house down, if she filed a complaint against him.
