A GRANDMOTHER feared she was going to die when a man suffering from schizophrenia held a knife to her throat, a court heard.
Judith Florian, 44, had been visiting her son and daughter-in-law and their children in Rutland Court, Bury St Edmunds, when Jamie Boreham had come running towards her shouting abuse.
He had grabbed hold of her wrist and produced a 10-inch kitchen carving knife which he held to her throat saying: "I'll have you," Ipswich Crown Court heard.
At that point Mrs Florian's pregnant daughter-in-law came out and unsuccessfully tried to pull Boreham away.

She then ran to a neighbour's house to get help, at which point Boreham had released his grip on Mrs Florian, said Peter Gair prosecuting.
As Boreham walked away he told a neighbour "back off I'm in the mind to kill somebody."

Boreham, 25, of Rutland Square, Bury St Edmunds admitted making a threat to kill Mrs Florian.
Sally Freeman, for Boreham, said that since the incident he had been diagnosed as suffering from schizophrenia and was taking medication for it.
Judge John Holt adjourned sentence for 28 days for Boreham to be assessed at a bail hostel.
The judge said that before considering making a community rehabilitation order he would have to be satisfied that there could be a strict control on Boreham's behaviour and medication.
