Two refused bail over brisbane nursing mother jailed for death threats
A brisbane mother whose husband was found guilty in 2011 of making death threats against her is locked up in prison.
In one letter, Ms Satter described her husband as a «big faggot».
Satter’s lawyer Michael Smith argued that the sentence should have been extended because the Crown had offered a higher amount.
He told the court the judge deserved leniency for having «a hard case that she’s made».
He said Ms Satter had been «living a double life» as a brisbane nurse.
«That is one of the things she needs to be very careful about because she’s going to have to deal with more anger that is going to result from her family’s life,» Mr Smith told the court on Tuesday.

Police found the letterjarvees.com inside the Satter home in the early hours of the morning on April 2, 2012.
In the months after the threat was made, Ms Satter’s marriage to Mr Satter fizzled out. She moved back to South Brisbane, where her husband lives in one bedroom apartment.
The following March, Ms Satter’s husband received another letter threatening to kill his wife.
Ms Smith told the court Ms Satter believed the letter was sent in an attempt to «destroy» her husband.
The day before the April 26, 2013, threats against her husband were sent, Ms Satter contacted the police about her husband’s actions, writing him and telling him she believed he had hit the target of her threats.
In an application to have the charges against her dropped last month, Ms Satter’s lawyers argued that she was suffering from a mental health problem an
