WINNER-A Winner man accused of threatening to kill a woman in July was sentenced Thursday to three years probation.

On July 15, 32-year-old Jordan Young was arrested when, according to court documents, he threatened to kill a woman and stabbed a knife into her doorway.

Following an argument and the incident for which he was arrested, Young reportedly fell asleep in the house, at which point the womAn left. Young was awakened by police and questioned.

According to the incident report filed by the Winner Police Department following his arrest, when asked why he had stabbed the knife into the house, Young responded that he "just needed a place to put it."

Young was transported to the Winner City Jail, where he tested positive for amphetamine and marijuana and gave a PBT of 0.108. He was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, unauthorized ingestion of a controlled substance and ingesting an intoxicant other than alcohol.

Young was given a suspended five-year penitentiary sentence and three years probation for the controlled substance charge. For the simple assault charge, he was sentenced to 180 days in jail with 138 days suspended and credit for the 42 days he had already served. He was also ordered to pay $288 in fines and court costs.
