Josh Powell Threatened Mother, Josh Powell listens as Stephan Downing, attorney for Chuck Cox, makes a statement during a custody hearing at the Pierce County Superior Courthouse in Tacoma, Wash., Sept. 27, 2011.
Josh Powell, the husband of a missing Utah woman who killed himself and his two young sons last week, was a disturbed adolescent who threatened and hit his mother, according to 1992 court documents obtained by ABC News.

The documents, filed during the divorce of Josh Powell’s parents in Washington state, Steven and Terrica Powell, include several statements by Terrica Powell describing her son’s disturbing behavior.

Terrica Powell wrote that her son once tried to commit suicide and also threatened her with a butcher knife. On other occasions, he and one of his brothers pushed and hit her, she wrote.

The butcher knife incident, Terrica Powell wrote, was the result of her asking her son to do the dishes.

“I felt extreme fear when Josh made a veiled threat at me with a butcher knife in his hand. His demeanor was menacing for a moment as he said, ‘Don’t push it, mom,’” Powell wrote. ” I was terrified and left the room to go downstairs “
