Mon­ster jailed af­ter email­ing footage of bru­tal at­tack on his part­ner

The People - - NEWS FEATURES - By Liz Dun­phy

COW­ER­ING in a cor­ner, vom­it­ing blood, mum-of-two Rachel White­house turned to her boyfriend and sobbed: “Look what you’ve done.”

Paul Mcevoy – the man she’d once loved – had beaten her sense­less.

It was Mother’s Day but Mcevoy couldn’t have cared less. “That’s noth­ing yet,” he replied. He was film­ing his at­tack so he could re­play the beat­ing again and again.

“You’re go­ing to prison,” Rachel cried. “Yeah?” mocked Mcevoy.

But the video led to him be­ing jailed for two and a half years af­ter he sent it to a friend of Rachel’s.

The pal passed it on to Rachel’s mum, who gave it to po­lice.

But Rachel, 34, whose sons are from a pre­vi­ous re­la­tion­ship, says Mcevoy, 38, had so much power over her she would not tes­tify against him.

She claims he con­tin­ued to tor­ment her from jail. She moved to a se­cret ad­dress but fears he could hurt other women when freed next sum­mer.

She wants the Sun­day Peo­ple to show the video to help per­suade other abuse vic­tims to speak out.

“You can hear my screams, see him smash­ing up the house and hear me beg­ging him to stop,” she says.
