A 54-year-old man is being held on $100,000 bond after police say he wrote threatening letters to a woman who has a restraining order out against him.

Greg Boe, of Williston, was charged Thursday with terrorizing, a class C felony, and violating a disorderly conduct restraining order, a class A misdemeanor.

Police said Boe sent flowers and a letter to a woman earlier this week and also sent a letter to the woman’s boss where he called her “his future wife.” In the letter, Boe wrote about the fact he had recently bought a gun, and told the woman the process had taken longer than he expected because of a restraining order she had obtained against him, according to an affidavit of probable cause filed in Northwest District Court.

The affidavit states Boe also wrote, “God has a plan for us to follow. Bloody consequences will arise for not following His plan. If you wish to follow Satan’s plan find a good makeup artist? I know undertakers do an excellent job of making the dead look presentable.” He then signed the letter, “Your future husband, Greg.”

The woman told police that she had never been in a relationship with Boe and that she was afraid for her own safety, as well as for the safety of her husband and her co-workers, charging documents state. A restraining order was put in place in May 2017 that bars Boe from contacting the woman until May 2019.

During a bond hearing Thursday, Nathan Madden, assistant state’s attorney for Williams County, asked for a bond of $100,000. He cited the letter and said there was a long history of Boe harassing the woman.

The woman previously got restraining orders against Boe in 2006 and 2011.

“I have concerns about someone who is escalating things,” Madden told Northwest District Judge Paul Jacobson.

Boe told Jacobson he didn’t have anything to say about bond, and Jacobson accepted the prosecution’s recommendation.

He is due back in court May 10 for a preliminary hearing.
