Bond was denied Tuesday for a Cobb County man that allegedly threatened to eat a judge’s children after killing his family.
James Satterfield, 58, was arrested in December after mailing a letter to the home of Cobb County Superior Court Judge Reuben Green. In the letter Satterfield allegedly wrote that he would kill the judge’s children and “cook them first to make them more palatable,” his arrest warrant states.
During a court hearing Tuesday, an investigator with the Cobb County Sheriff’s Office said it appeared Satterfield may have been planning to carry out his plan. Satterfield had recently moved out of his apartment, written his wife a $72,000 check, told family to give away his belongings, and had a gun in his van, Channel 2 Action News reported.
Green presided over Satterfield’s divorce and prosecutors contend he was mad over the amount of time and money spent in the split from his wife.
Presiding in a Cobb County courtroom, a Douglas County judge denied bond for Satterfield and ordered him to undergo a psychiatric evaluation.
