A Dutchess County man is accused of violating an order of protection by telling someone he was going to kill that person.

On Friday, the Town of Poughkeepsie Police Department received a complaint about an order of protection violation. The victim said 32-year-old Andrew K. Winstel of Millbrook said he was going to kill the unnamed victim.

A family court order of protection prohibits Winstel from making contact with the victim, police say. Winstel surrendered himself to police and was charged with criminal contempt, a felony. He was remanded to Dutchess County Jail in lieu of $5,000 cash or $10,000 bond.
