Man makes terroristic threat against employees, sentenced

MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) - Cobb County prosecutors say a man who threatened to kill employees of a suburban Atlanta apartment complex has been sentenced to prison.

District Attorney's spokeswoman Kim Isaza says 20-year-old Kahlem Looney was sentenced to five years with two to serve in prison and the rest on probation. Looney was convicted of making terroristic threats.

Authorities say Looney threatened employees at the Stratford Ridge apartments Sept. 17, 2014 after managers evicted tenants of a unit he was staying in. Prosecutors say Looney's name was not on the lease.

Prosecutors have said three employees and two witnesses told police Looney said he knew the employees' work schedules and would return to kill them all.
