Threatening people with bodily harm is called assault. It is both a criminal and civil offense (the offender can be sued and have criminal charges). The fear of being harmed is the distinguishing factor.
Battery is the actual hurting of someone. It is possible to have assault and battery, assault only, or battery only - where the attacker hits someone but they didn't see it coming.
Unfortunately the law has loop holes in it. You have to either have a witness, get it on tape (from a phone message) or a copy of an email. Just your word will be heresay in a court of law if it even reaches court. If reported to the police their hands are tied unless you can actually show physical harm to your body or your apartment or home has been trashed by this person. Even at that the police still have to prove this person did it. With DNA and other technology they should be able to get proof in this case.
A personal experience:
I belong to a Motocross club and this just happened to our club's pres. Per the advice of the town's chief of police, the event should have been reported. Do not verbally threaten someone's life unless you are cool with having a record of it, along with possible harassment charges.
It is illegal to threaten anyone's life.
The attempt of taking someones life is illegal. Suicide is such an attempt even if it's your own life you are trying to take. Therefore the attempt for suicide is illegal. That is the case with a successful murder as well. Since is illegal to murder, and suicide is murdering yourself, suicide is illegal.
If you threaten to hurt somebody, it is assualt. For instance, going up to somebody and saying Im gonna kill you or Im gonna hurt you, that's assualt. Actually hurting them is battery. Then there is aggravated and simple assualt, but I'm not going to get into that.
In most countries threatening someones life or physical safetly is a jailable offence. In Canada uttering a death threat is punishable by up to five years in prison.
It is very much so Illegal. Although some people may say it isn't, it in fact is. That's like copyright to your personal life.

It depends on who, where, and when. As a teacher, if someone verbally threatens me with bodily harm I press charges. A juvenile will receive less of a punishment than an adult but depending on state's laws anywhere from a warning to jail time.

It is illegal for a parent or guardian to fail to provide the necessities of life for those in their care. Of course, it is not illegal to threaten to do so, it is merely illegal to do it. We do not necessarily know how sincere those threats are, and parents resort to many different strategies in trying to control unruly children.
