Read the chilling text messages a Bachelorette star sent to his mother threatening to torture and kill his stepfather, and his chilling response when she called the police: “You have no idea what I’m capable of.”
- Charles Stanley Newling, 36, sent horrifying threats to his mother and stepfather
- Newling sent more than 37 drunk messages over a three-hour period
- In one message, Newling threatened to torture, kill and “p***” his stepfather.
A star of The Bachelorette has been convicted of sending his mother chilling death threats, warning that he would “torture” and “kill” her husband of two decades.
Charles Stanley Newling, 36, who appeared on the hit reality show’s 2018 season, was on trial at Waverley Magistrates’ Court in Sydney on Wednesday accused of using a ride-hailing service to make threats of killing after he was arrested on March 25 April had sent 37 horrible messages over a three hour period that he had been drinking.
Terrified by the ordeal, his mother wrote back threatening to call the police, but Newling responded by writing: “hahaha,” the Daily Telegraph reported.
“I took out two cops and two security guards and got away with it. This is a walk in the park,’ he said.
“You’re still controlled by that whip of a husband…
“I’ll kill him in front of you one day before I go… You have no idea what I’m capable of, but all you know is that it won’t be pretty… TDK RIP. The P stands for piss not piece as I’m going to piss on him after torturing the vile c***.

The court heard how his mother and stepfather were extremely afraid of Newling’s behavior towards them and had not spoken to him for some time.
Newling started the spate of messages by texting his mum: “Just so you know I’m still alive, fine and thinking of you xx”.
His mother responded with “good news” and sent some love heart emojis.
However, this seemed to deter Newling, who then began the tirade of death threats against his stepfather.
“What if I’m just outside… Guess the cops can come so soon… I know where you live, where you work, where you eat, where you sleep. As far as you know, I’m in your backyard right now,” one of the messages said.
Judge Ross Hudson said the news (pictured) caused “fear, distress and horror”.
The messages quickly grew even darker.
“I’d rather spend a life in prison killing that motherfucker than live the life you two gave me… His throat gets cut the next time he tries to go to work… or maybe if he’s at work… Or maybe when he’s taking out the bins… I know all your moves.
“I hope you have a good watchdog because the cops won’t shit on me even with an AVO. They will not sit in front of your house. How does it feel knowing your c*** of a husband is getting a knife down his throat you have no idea where or when.
Judge Ross Hudson acknowledged that Newling suffered significant childhood trauma, including caring for his birth father when he was a teenager after he was involved in an accident and became paraplegic.
His father later died in 2018 from a painkiller overdose.
Newling’s attorney Scott Schaudin said his client struggled with alcohol abuse but spent a lot of time contributing to the community.
When Newling’s mother replied that she was going to the police, he laughed at it
“He had a full-time job as a contractor… he seems pretty clear-headed and reasonable now,” he said.
However, Judge Hudson said he had to consider the “fear, agony and horror” caused by Newling’s messages.
Newling was initially denied bail for using a ride-hailing service to threaten to kill and has been in custody since August 17.
At the time of the threats, he was on a court order after a moderate drunk driving incident in 2021.
Magistrate Hudson found Newling guilty and sentenced him to 13 months in prison to serve in the community.
