Man threatened his sick mother

A MAN who told his terminally ill mother to "hurry up and die" before waving two knives at her and his grandmother has been jailed for two and a half years.

A sheriff said Darren Airlie, 24, was "not fit for normal society" after he admitted threatening and abusive behaviour at the home he shared with his mother Jennifer, 45, and grandmother Kathleen, 72, in Dundee.
