Suspended jail sentence imposed on a man who head butted his wife
MAGISTRATES imposed a 16-week suspended jail sentence on a man who head butted his wife when told she was dumping him in favour of her new partner.
George Vaughan had left his wife with blood pouring from a wound after her head bounced off a wall with “a sickening thud.”
He had also grabbed her around the throat with both hands during the incident, Fenland magistrates were told.
Last month 55-year-old Vaughan of Russell Avenue, March, had admitted a charge of assault causing actual bodily harm.
This week magistrates read a report before giving Vaughan a suspended jail sentence, with requirements that he carries out 220 hours of unpaid work, and is supervised by the probation service for 12 months. He was given a two year restraining order and must pay his victim �100 compensation.
At last month’s hearing, the court was told how Vaughan had asked his wife to chose between him and her new liaison -- and when she chose her new relationship he had just snapped.
Mitigating, Ian Graham had said: “It was the cold manner in which she said she no longer loved him or wanted him that caused him to snap.
