The next day, he repeated his actions, sexually assaulting and beating the complainant, whilst threatening her with death. The woman managed to escape from the home when her partner took a shower, asking for help from a neighbour who immediately called the police.
Over the summer of 2018, it is alleged that the woman endured frequent acts of violence from her partner, including being pepper sprayed. The defendant faces several serious charges,where the prosecution is asking that he receives a 34-year jail sentence
