A Frankton man who allegedly threatened to kill a Queenstown journalist was remanded in custody when he appeared in the Queenstown District Court yesterday.

Jamie Mathew Sutherland, 29, unemployed, appeared before Judge Kevin Phillips charged with threatening to kill a staff member in the offices of The Southland Times and Mirror.

Sutherland's lawyer requested the case be remanded without plea pending a legal aid application.

Judge Phillips remanded Sutherland in custody until June 5, saying he had to have a health assessment completed before that date.
