broken door jamb


I have a broken door jamb and I need an inexpensive fix for it....I am thinking that liquid wood/wood epoxy is my best bet but I don't have much experiance with these products at all. How does liquid wood/ wood epoxy hold up to having screws placed in it after it has dried? Are there any other ways to fix this problem without completly replacing the door jamb? Here is a picture of the jamb...

Cut out the broken section so that a 1x2 will fit in. Glue & screw to the original jamb. Then use Bondo (body putty) to smooth out any imperfections, Sand and refinish.
