Canberra man who breached COVID-19 isolation to threaten neighbour with axe sentenced to four years in jail

A Canberra man who went after his neighbour with an axe while he was in isolation with COVID-19 has been sentenced to nearly four years' jail in the ACT Supreme Court.
Jayke Fleury, 36, pleaded guilty to a raft of charges from several different incidents, including drug trafficking and assaulting a police officer.

The court heard how in September last year, as he was isolating with COVID-19, Fleury threw something through a window from his upstairs apartment, sending shards of glass into the courtyard below.

When his neighbour protested and asked who would clean up the mess, Fleury went down to the man's apartment and broke in, before swinging an axe at him several times.
