A man who is accused of threatening to kill a man who pointed him out during an identification parade is spending the Christmas and New Year holidays behind bars.

Rohan Cross was last Monday remanded in custody by Senior Magistrate Judith Pusey in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court on a charge of threat.

The court heard that on December 14, Cross, who was on an identification parade at the Half-Way-Tree police lock-up in relation to a murder, threatened to kill the witness after he was positively identified.

It is reported that Cross shouted to the complainant saying, "Stephen, yuh dead, yuh dead, gunshot yuh a go get."

Following his outburst, Cross was charged.

"It is amazing, you're back before me again," Pusey said to the accused. "When are you going to change your life around?"

Cross was subsequently remanded into custody until January 8.
