A SERIAL thug who told his ex-lover “I’ll put you next to your f****** granddad in a chilling WhatsApp rant has been caged for two years.
Vile Adam Finney, 35, threatened to “do something wicked” after his former partner plucked up the courage to leave him.
Just days earlier he had grabbed her by the throat before threatening to cave in her head.
The victim was so terrified of her PT ex that she asked her dad to move in to keep her safe.
Bradford Crown Court heard Finney had 21 previous convictions for 65 offences, including resisting the police, kidnap, causing actual bodily harm, threatening behaviour, affray and grievous bodily harm.
He had more than ten convictions for battery and a “worrying” history of violence towards women.
Recorder Andrew Haslam QC said the WhatsApp messages were “quite awful,” with Finney threatening to “do madness” to the woman and “burn her car out.”
The court heard how the petrified victim was “shaking and sobbing” when she talked to cops.

Finney, of Bradford, West Yorks., pleaded guilty to assault by beating, making threats to kill, and assaulting a prison officer.
He was jailed for two years and given a restraining order banning him from contacting the woman for six years.
