A woman recently told Jackson County Sheriff’s Office deputies a man was threatening to kill her husband and that the man was outside the husband’s place of work with a gun.

Drake Gaston Stanifer, 31, 205 Hunters Run, Jefferson, allegedly sent the woman several messages on Facebook threatening to beat up and shoot the husband. Stanifer at one point recanted the death threat, saying he was only going to beat up the husband, but later said he would kill him if he didn’t come outside to meet him.

The woman sent screenshots of the messages to the deputy and the deputy went to the business where he met Stanifer. Stanifer admitted to having a gun but refused to show the deputy his phone so the deputy could see the messages. Stanifer was arrested and charged with terroristic threats.
