Former #AFL West Coast Eagle Ben Cousins due back in court for kill threat. More Here;

FALLEN AFL premiership player Ben Cousins is scheduled to appear in a Perth court again following allegations he threatened to bury his ex-partner alive and take their two children to play on the site.

The 40-year-old drug addict was arrested on August 21 during a disturbance at a Canning Vale house and was later allegedly found with 13 grams of methylamphetamine hidden in his rectum.

A tearful and dishevelled Cousins was refused bail when he faced Armadale Magistrates Court the following day.

The former West Coast captain is scheduled to appear in court later on Tuesday via video link from Hakea prison.

He faces a total of 16 offences including aggravated burglary, aggravated stalking and possessing a prohibited drug with intent to sell or supply.

Most charges, some of which date back to August 8, relate to Cousins allegedly repeatedly breaching a violence restraining order taken out by his ex-partner Maylea Tinecheff.
