Belvedere man plagued ex-girlfriend with abusive texts and said he would get father of her children 'shot'

News Shopper: Morrell outside of Bromley Magistrates' Court Morrell outside of Bromley Magistrates' Court

A Belvedere man harassed his ex-girlfriend with a torrent of abusive texts, smashed up her car and threatened “to get the father of her children shot”.

Adam Morrell, 30, referred to mother-of-three Charlotte Kenton, of Barnfield Road, as ‘a c**t’ and vandalised her blue Peugeot before texting her saying ‘smashed mirror on car, old slag’.

Morrell, of Lessness Road, began dating Ms Kenton, who had three children from a previous relationship, in December but things went sour earlier this year.

Prosecutor Kara Cann told Bromley Magistrates’ Court on Friday: “She was concerned he was becoming increasingly jealous and controlling.

“Since then he had called and texted and it has ranged from pleading to abusive– one day she had 32 missed calls from him.

“He used terms such as slag, c**t and Essex slag.

“He suggested he was arranging to to get the father of her children shot.”

Five days later he stepped up the harassment even further.

Ms Cann said: “She was putting her kids into the vehicle and he drove by in a van.

“He was next to her and went close and was driving dangerously - he was undertaking and overtaking.

“She was very upset about the abuse and about the safety of her and her children.”

Emma Harris, defending, said: “He is unwell and is receiving counselling.

“His mum’s view is he just needs to be at home with her at this time.”

Morrell had previously pleaded guilty to harassment without violence and a separate charge of  criminal damage to property valued under £5,000.

He denied a another count of criminal damage to property valued under £5,000. This charge was subsequently dismissed when the prosecution offered no evidence.

He will be sentenced at Bexley Magistrates’ Court on June 4 and must not visit or contact Ms Kenton in the meantime.

I don't understand what is supposed to be wrong with Essex? Far preferable to Larndarn.

Is the Moon & Sixpence in Welling still open? If so the lad should catch the train & visit the place, some real classy sorts in there that would suit him down to a T.

He deserves to be locked up before he ends up killing someone. I was with him about 6 months and he gave me absolute hell. He was so jealous, controlling an abusive. He chased me through country lanes at night trying to run me off the road. He's a head case. I hope he gets rightful justice and gets sent to prison. He is a complete and utter scum bag. I had a lucky escape...
