‘He shouted abuse and said I was hav­ing an af­fair’

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - FRONT PAGE -

A TEAR­FUL Mrs Sanna said her hus­band shouted abuse at her in front of their chil­dren that evening, and ac­cused her of hav­ing an af­fair as she cooked din­ner. She claimed she had not re­sponded, and that this made him an­grier. In her ver­sion of events, he grabbed her wrists, tried to drag her out of the kitchen, then slapped her with his right hand. She told the court: “It was very sur­real to me. I felt like I was see­ing a movie. “My head flew to one side, and all my hair fell over my face. “He hit me with a full swing from as far back as he could. Then he hit me on the other side of my face with his left hand. “I was in shock and wasn’t quite sure what was go­ing on. My head was pound­ing and my face was sore. “He then grabbed my left arm in his right hand, and with his left hand he grabbed my throat. “I was ter­ri­fied. I couldn’t move or breathe. I thought he was go­ing to kill me in the kitchen with the chil­dren in the house. “I tried to push him off, but couldn’t. I punched him as hard as I could. “He flew back­wards and let go of me. “He shook his head and came to then. It was very strange – he was al­most like a dif­fer­ent per­son. “He ob­vi­ously re­alised what he had done.”
