I found out she was homeless again fall 2017, her family was "tired" of her, she refuses gov. assist. I invited her to stay the winter, starting `Nov. 4. Soon realized she lives in full delusion now. Jan. starts and psychosis rises in steady increments. Feb. 2 she took ALL our food in the night, $60 from my purse, appliances, movie collection, and more, blocked her doors, has my house keys, refuses to communicate. She has an axe: a sharp, small, one piece forge, kitchen knives, probably blunt tools.She watched me "sleeping" from the doorway of my room upstairs early 2/11, a rough draft? I heard her saying to her voices she hates my guts for denying her cigarettes (refuses smoke outside), and she's going to cut my throat out. Sheriff's say there's no crime, she lives here so everything is hers.I slept with a baseball bat lastnight.For weeks authority always ask if she's threatened me personally, no, murderers do not set appt. with you.She listens on other phone, sneaks out to damage, unplug, pour out, steal more, turn off, take daily objects, cramping our life---a restrained violence that is circling in closer and closer.My 3 kids are scared and want to sleep elsewhere.
This is not really a "criminal defense" question, but you either have to evict her, contact a designated mental health professional to try and evaluate her, or try and get some sort of protection order.
"She's going to cut my throat out" is harassment. You could take an audio file of her doing it and submit it to the Prosecutor for harassment. I'd say get a restraining order but such orders don't work on the mentally ill. Stealing, threats. .breaking stuff, those are all crimes and I promise they'll prosecute.
