A Hadfield man threatened to kill his mum in a row over a computer tablet, a court heard.

Lisa Fuller went to her son Frank’s flat at 9.30am on September 11 to retrieve a tablet she had lent to his girlfriend, High Peak Magistrates’ Court heard.

But Fuller opened the window to his flat and started swearing and shouting abuse at his mum before throwing objects from the window sill. He eventually threw the tablet out of the window followed by the charger, prosecutor John Cooper said.

In interview, he said he had a poor relationship with his mum because she had never cared for him like she should. He said he had been running around after his girlfriend who was ill and that he was emotional and upset.

Fuller, 20, of Ewart Court, admitted using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour.

Representing himself in court, he said he had just wanted a lie-in that morning, adding: “It is a family matter. I know I did wrong by shouting.”

The case was adjourned until October 27 for a pre-sentence report.
