"Victim’s Head Held Under Water In Bath"
The case was heard in the Royal Court
A WOMAN thought she was going to die as her ex-fiancé strangled her while holding her head under water in the bath, a court heard.
The victim was ‘absolutely terrified’ as care worker Matthew Daniel Barnes pushed her under the water for a second time and told her ‘You’re going to die tonight’, the Royal Court was told.
The 30-year-old, who has a previous conviction in the UK for grievous bodily harm, then prevented her from leaving her flat, but she later escaped and ran in her pyjamas to her mother’s house.
Wigan-born Barnes admitted committing a grave and criminal assault on his ex-partner on 7 April at her home address. He was jailed for two years and excluded from licensed premises for six months on his release from prison.
