"I told you before about showing me respect."

The 38-year-old applied for bail in the Southport Magistrates Court yesterday(((FRI))) after being charged with unlawful stalking, possessing dangerous drugs, enter dwelling to commit an indictable offence and three counts of using a carriage service to make threats to kill.

The court was told that as well as the voicemail on March 13, Sinfield allegedly sent photos taken from inside his ex-partner's home, including her bedroom and garage.

"I don't make empty threats, I don't talk s***, bitch, I do it," an accompanying text message allegedly read.

Sinfield is also accused of sending her photos taken from inside her own home alongside a threatening message.

Sinfield is also accused of threatening to kill the woman's ex-husband and a police officer.

All the offences occurred on March 13, police allege.

Magistrate Pam Dowse adjourned the matter for a week to see if Sinfield could provide an appropriate address.

She said the address Sinfield had put forward was too close to the alleged victim's home.

"I am very concerned about the threats and I'm taking into account the special circumstances of COVID," she said.

Sinfield's lawyer, Ashleigh Nicholls, of Legal Aid Queensland, said Sinfield would be contesting the allegations before the court.

She said Sinfield has been in custody since March 16, which was a difficult time as he was unable to receive visits due to the pandemic.

The matter will return to court on May 8.
