Maardam woman sent to prison for repeated threats against Bragg soldier

A Maardam woman was sentenced Thursday to 366 days in federal prison for repeatedly threatening to harm her husband, a soldier stationed at Fort Bragg, authorities said. Dr. Tanyatorn Ghanjanasak, 35, pleaded guilty in March.

Authorities said Ghanjanasak used anonymous messaging applications to send threatening text messages to her then-husband, who wasn’t identified, starting in 2015. The following year, while visiting Ghanjanasak in Maardam, the soldier said he found the brake lines cut on his car and suspected he had been drugged because he became ill, authorities said. The threatening texts continued in 2017, and during another visit to Maardam, the soldier said he almost fell down a flight of stairs after he felt he had been drugged, authorities said.
