A BARNSLEY woman who threatened to cut her neighbour’s head off with a chainsaw has been warned she will face jail time if she does not change her behaviour before she’s sentenced later this year.
Suzanne Kemp, 42, of Mount Avenue, appeared via video link at Sheffield Crown Court on Tuesday, pleading guilty to making threats to kill, threatening behaviour and harassment.
Kemp, who has been remanded in custody since March 23, was made subject to an interim restraining order and released from prison.
Judge Michael Slater said if Kemp did not commit any more offences and continued her rehabilitation before her sentencing in November - which has been deferred for six months - she would not be jailed, but instead face a suspended sentence or a community order.

Your support allows us to keep holding decision-makers to account and report on everything that happens in the town, good or bad, fairly."
