A man threatened to kill his sister because she is turning his daughter gay, according to police reports in Connecticut.

Plainville Police said that they arrested a local man on Wednesday, after he allegedly made several threats against homosexuals to his sister and other relatives.

Gordon Bissonnette, 46, of 24 Canal Street, was reported to police on Wednesday by his mother, Clelie Bissonnette, of the same address, who said her son threatened to kill her if he saw her lesbian daughter.

Also on Wednesday, Gordon’s brother, Brian Bissonnette, went to the police and played eight threatening voicemails left by his brother. Gordon is heard expressing disapproval of the sexual orientation of his sister, Corinne Bissonnette.

“If I see her there will be bullets flying,” Gordon said in a voice message.

“I’ll put a bullet in their heads. If they turn my daughter gay, I’ll kill you both. I’m going to blow your brains out,” he said.

Gordon was charged with second-degree intimidation as a hate crime, second-degree threatening and second-degree harassment. He was indicted on those charges on Thursday in Bristol Superior Court, where his bail was set at $75,000.

Gordon was ordered to stay away of his family.

Gordon admitted to police that he left voice messages, but he could not remember exactly what he said because he was drunk. He also told police that he planned to throw a smoke bomb into the house to scare his family.
