A woman accused of stalking a man by sending him more than 159,000 text messages—including death threats—said she wants her case to go to trial because she believes the jury would find her innocent and order them to get married.

Those were among the comments made by Jacqueline Ades in a recent phone interview with The Arizona Republic from Maricopa County’s Estrella Jail, where she has been held since May 2018.

Ades’ case has garnered national attention after authorities said she continued to stalk a Paradise Valley man after a single date, broke into his home and sent thousands of text messages to him over the course of 10 months — including some in which she threatened to wear his flesh and devour his organs.

Ades was incredulous that her actions warranted jail time.

“I just think it’s ridiculous,” Ades said. “I can’t believe that it turned into this. I can’t believe that I’m actually in jail over some text messages.”

This story started in July 2017, when Ades was found parked outside of the man’s home after he apparently told her that he was not interested in continuing their relationship past one date. Police promptly showed up and told her to leave, though this didn’t stop her from stopping by again in December.

The situation escalated when Ades broke into the man’s home, and police found her taking a bath in his tub.

Meanwhile, she was sending him approximately 500 texts a day, according to a police report, the messages included:

When asked about the threatening messages, she told police “she threatened him because she did not want him to leave.”

“I was looking for my healing angel…the psychic I met told me would meet a healing angel,” she said in an interview from prison.
