Man sentenced for threatening to kill apartment complex employees

COBB COUNTY, Ga. -- A Marietta man will spend time in prison after threatening to kill three employees of a Cobb County apartment complex.

A Cobb County Superior Court judge sentenced 20-year-old Kahlem Kenord Looney to five years, with two to serve in prison.

Looney was convicted last month of making terroristic threats to employees of the Stratford Ridge Apartments on Collingwood Drive, just off Delk Road.

It happened Sept. 17, 2014, after complex managers evicted the tenants of an apartment where Looney was staying. Prosecutors said Looney was not on the lease.

Two eyewitnesses and the three victims told police Looney yelled at the employees, saying he knew the hours they worked and would come back to kill them.

In court, Looney denied making the threat.

"This defendant has shown no remorse whatsoever for his actions," Cobb County ADA Shep Orlow told the court. "I don't think it's unreasonable for people to expect that they can work in a safe environment without fear that someone will come and kill them for doing their jobs."
