An Etowah County woman has been arrested after allegedly stalking a man and threatening to hurt him, according to the Etowah County Sheriff’s Office.
Belinda Lynn Jenkins, 51, of Rainbow City, is charged with first-degree stalking and harassment. According to police, Jenkins allegedly began following the victim and his family, as well as showing up to family events, the victim’s job, and even his vacations. She also allegedly threatened the victim’s life and others that he might be around.
According to court documents, Jenkins allegedly told the victim, “My death will be on you but when I find you then we will die together. I swear it on everyone’s lives.” ECSO report that Jenkins also repeatedly texted and threatened the victim.
