WILLIAMS TWP., Pa. -

A man is in trouble with the law for threatening to kill his half-brother and other people living in their home, officials said.

Blair Cressman was overheard by his half-brother, Albert Vega Morales III, telling their grandfather, Robert Cressman, that he was looking for a knife in the trunk of his car so he could stab Morales, officials said, adding that Morales was standing by a kitchen window of their home at 285 Industrial Drive North, Williams Twp., Northampton Co., when he heard the threat.

Robert Cressman went inside the home to warn Morales, and later, when Morales went outside to talk with his half-brother, Blair Cressman threatened to kill everyone in the house, officials said.

At police headquarters, Blair Cressman admitted to threatening Morales, but said he had no intention of carrying out the threat, officials said.

Cressman, 29, was arraigned Sunday afternoon on charges of making terroristic threats and harassment and committed to the Northampton County Prison on $15,000 bail, according to court documents.

A preliminary hearing is set for 9 a.m. April 19.
