An Orma man has been charged following an incident last week after he reportedly chased another man into a Letherbark house, threatening to kill him.

Freddie R. Starcher, 43, was charged by Trooper J. A. Newman with "unlawfully attempting to commit violent injury to a person."

Starcher, according to the criminal complaint, chased Josh Boswell into the private residence, issuing threats to him.

Boswell said he was walking toward Spencer when Starcher jumped out of an SUV and started chasing him, exclaiming "I'm gonna kill you," according to the complaint.

Boswell told police that he had been staying at Starcher's residence.

Boswell jumped a yard gate and entered the residence of Barbara Wilson, seeking refuge. Wilson called 911 for help.

Wilson told police she heard Starcher say he was going to shoot the victim. Boswell told police, according to the criminal complaint, that he would not leave the porch because Starcher wanted to kill him.

When State Police arrived on scene, they could not find weapons.

Starcher was taken to the hospital complaining of chest pains.

Starcher has been released on bond.
