I'm sorry to hear this happened to your wife.

The answer to your question is yes, you can make a police report against him.

Under FL law, the crime here would actually be referred to as aggravated stalking.

The aggravated stalking statute covers death threats that cause the victim to be in fear for their safety, or the safety of their loved ones.

Based on the information you shared, this would be considered a 1st degree misdemeanor, which means it is punishable by up to 1 year in jail and/or a fine up to $1,000.

I hope that helps!
