Ga. man convicted of threat to eat judge's kids

 

MARIETTA, Ga. -- A Georgia man has been found guilty but mentally ill after threatening to eat the family of a judge in metro Atlanta.

Cobb County prosecutors said Thursday 59-year-old James Edward Satterfield was convicted on multiple counts involving terroristic threats.

Sentencing isn’t set, but authorities say the man is likely to get a prison term with psychiatric treatment.

The threats involved Cobb Superior Court Judge Reuben Green, who presided over Satterfield’s divorce. The case ended in July 2012.

A prosecutor and police say Satterfield sent a letter to the judge’s wife months later threatening to kill the judge’s children and eat them.

A defense attorney didn’t dispute that Satterfield wrote and mailed the letter, but he argued the man is delusional.
