A Dillsburg-area man accused of telling his estranged wife that he daydreams about killing her and their children as they sleep has been jailed in Cumberland County.

Todd Allyn Youngblood, 32, of 1245 Fickes Road in Warrington Township, was arraigned over the weekend on charges of making terroristic threats and harassment, according to Upper Allen Township Police.

Youngblood was committed to Cumberland County Prison on Sunday after arraigning District Judge Paul Fegley denied him bail, court records state.

Charging documents state Rachael Youngblood and the children she shares with Todd Youngblood are now living in Upper Allen Township.

Rachael Youngblood called police on Sunday and reported that in an Aug. 4 conversation with her estranged husband, he told he "daydreams" of killing her and their children, adding "he would then shoot (her) in the abdomen, so she would die slowly," charging documents allege.

Todd Youngblood also allegedly said he would then drag her from room to room in the house to "show her the other murders he had committed," documents state.

He also sent Rachael Youngblood text messages on Sunday saying he was going to get drunk and that his "vision" was "going to come true," charging documents allege.

The estranged couple spoke on the phone the same day, and during that conversation Todd Youngblood repeated his threats to kill his estranged wife and their children, "adding he would also kill her parents and her extended family," documents state.
