A 30-YEAR-OLD man has appeared in court over Facebook posts in which he talked about killing his mother and getting rid of her body.

In the dock at Dunfermline Sheriff Court last Friday was Paul Green. He admitted that on September 4 last year at Fraser Avenue, Inverkeithing, he sent Facebook messages to Kelly Green, his sister, which were grossly offensive and of an indecent, obscene or menacing nature in that he threatened to kill his mother.

Green, of Lesmahagow, had been posting to his sister about his mother, depute fiscal Azrah Yousaf told Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

The subject was how he could kill his mother and get away with it. He posted about how he would “grind his mother’s bones” said the depute.

Other posts topics, included “transporting the corpse from A to B with no witnesses” and he said he would have to do this at night.

“His sister became concerned about the messages and contacted her mother who contacted the police,” added Ms Yousaf.

Green told police he had made “stupid statements” on Facebook but would not have acted on them. He said he “watched a lot of TV”.

Defence solicitor James Moncrieff said: “The background was a strained relationship between Mr Green and his mother.

Sheriff Craig McSherry deferred sentenced for good behaviour until October 18.
