Hello Jacustomer,

The statute that comes closes to what you describe here in Mississipi is Stalking. It is a misdemeanor with a maximum penalty of one year. (three if he's been convicted of it before). This covers death threats. While there are two other statutes for Threats and Intimidation I don't think they will apply to these circumstances. Still you can see them here. And here's the other one. The penalties for the crimes are found in the statutes.
