Former Ham Lake woman sentenced for making death threat

A 34-year-old woman was placed on three years probation May 16 following a guilty plea in Anoka County District Court to a felony charge of terroristic threats.

Divina Marie Sulentich of St. Paul, formerly of Ham Lake, had served two days in jail after being arrested Jan. 2. She was not ordered to serve any more time behind bars for this crime unless she violates the terms of her probation, which include taking anger management classes or meeting with a counselor.

Sulentich must also pay a court fine of $185.

According to the criminal complaint, police were called to the Ham Lake home where Sulentich lived in at approximately 11 p.m. Jan. 2.

A man who also lived at the home told police that Sulentich scratched his face, broke their computer, cut the power cord of the computer with a knife and put the tip of the knife to him during an argument. He recorded the incident on his cell phone.

According to the complaint, authorities could hear Sulentich saying, “I swear I’ll kill you, I swear to God I don’t care.”

A knife was located in a sink within the residence. Sulentich acknowledged having a knife during the argument, according to the complaint.

As part of the plea agreement, another felony charge of second-degree assault was dismissed, according to court records.
