In the voicenote, the man is heard repeatedly telling a woman identified as ‘Denise’ that he was going to kill her.
He lamented that he was left hurt after she ended the relationship, accusing her of using him.
But, the woman said that she walked away because she no longer felt comfortable in the relationship.
This did not discourage him and he repeated his threats to harm her.
