A $20,000 bond has been set for a former University of Arkansas at Monticello student suspected of threatening to kill a Drew County man.
Elijah Admire, 21, of Texas, reportedly told various people that he was going to the kill the man, according to a news release from the Drew County Sheriff’s Office.
After allegedly making threats toward the man, Admire reportedly began sending threats through text messages, according to Lt. Tim Nichols, a criminal investigator with the Drew County Sheriff’s Office.
Admire reportedly sent another text to a friend who was spending time in Texas with a local church group from Monticello. In that text, Admire allegedly told that person of his plans.
Admire was arrested in Dallas, Texas where he waived extradition to Arkansas. After arriving in Drew County, Admire reportedly admitted sending the text and making the threats.
“When asked why he done this he stated that he hated (the man) and that he wanted to scare (him),” Nichols said. “He said it is hard for him to get over a grudge.”
Judge Sara Hartness set Admire’s bond at $20,000 on May 6.
