Man jailed for trying to kill his partner multiple times
A WOMAN who went through a terrifying ordeal which ended with her boyfriend trying to kill her by driving off a steep embankment has seen him jailed for five years.
Palma court heard that in the summer of 2017 the couple were driving on the Banyalbufar to Esporles road when an argument started.
The accused, a 32-year-old Spaniard, is said to have stopped the car near the edge of a steep slope and shouted “It’s here, it’s time.”
Alarmed, his victim jumped from the car and began walking down the road in search of help.
But the convicted man caught up with her, strangled her then forced the woman back into the car. He then went back to the embankment, accelerated and drove straight off, with the intention of killing his victim.
They both suffered multiple injuries in the incident.
As well as the jail sentence the man has had a 10 year exclusion order placed on him and been ordered to pay the victim €4,600 compensation for her injuries and the value of her car, which was written off.
