A Dutchess County man is facing new charges after allegedly violating a court-ordered order of protection and threatening to kill his victim in Poughkeepsie.

Millbrook resident Andrew Winstel, 34 surrendered himself into custody at the Town of Poughkeepsie Police Department on Friday, when investigators received a complaint of a past violation of an order of protection.

According to police, the victim stated that Winstel made a verbal threat that he was going to kill the victim, who is currently the protected part of a Family Court Order of Protection, which prohibits Winstel from making contact with the aggrieved party.

Within a few hours, police said that investigators were able to get in touch with Winstel, who surrendered himself into police custody at the department, where he was arrested and charged with a felony count of first-degree criminal contempt.

Winstel was arraigned in the Town of Poughkeepsie Court and remanded to the Dutchess County Jail in lieu of $5,000 cash bail or $10,000 bond. Winstel is due back in court on Wednesday, June 6 to answer the charge.
