James Edward Satterfield, 58, of Cobb County was being held without bail on a charge of making terroristic threats, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. He was arrested Dec. 30.
Satterfield's letter to the wife of Cobb County Superior Court Judge Reuben Green was postmarked Dec. 20 and sent to the couple's home, investigators said. His arrest warrant said he told the judge's wife he would kill and eat the children, cooking them "to make them more palatable."
"Please give a copy of this letter to the police so that when you are slaughtered the public will know who were really responsible," the letter allegedly said.
