WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- A 35-year-old North Carolina woman is facing three felony counts of making threats against a district judge.
The Winston-Salem Journal reported that Barbara Morgan of Pfafftown told a Winston-Salem police officer she would kill Judge Denise Hartsfield.
According to arrest warrants, Morgan also is accused of leaving threatening messages on Hartsfield's voicemail.
Assistant District Attorney Jonathan Friel says Morgan was upset that Hartsfield ruled against her in a custody dispute.
Morgan's attorney Rebecca Wood asked for a reduction in her client's $50,000 bond at a hearing Tuesday, but the motion was denied.
Morgan is charged with three counts of threatening an executive legal officer. She faces a maximum of 24 months in prison on each of the three felony charges.
