Cabrera is accused of destroying the victim's required medications and intimidating the victim, causing humiliation and distress, warrants state. The medications are "necessary for the victim's survival," warrants state.
"Without the medication, the victim's condition will quickly deteriorate to the point of death," warrants state.
Cabrera is accused of stalking the victim through "a pattern of words and conduct" that were intended to cause the victim to "fear death and assault and injury," warrants state.
Cabrera made the stalking threats verbally, through electronic means, and also stole personal property, warrants allege.
SLED agents investigated and the 15th Circuit Solicitor's Office in Horry and Georgetown counties will prosecute the case because one of the victims is an employee of the 16th Circuit solicitor's office, said Willy Thompson, deputy solicitor.
