A MAN from Anglesey has been jailed after assaulting his ex-partner, in an attack where he made her "fear for her life".

Karl Wayne Williams, 37, of Maes Llewelyn, Aberffraw, appeared at Mold Crown Court on Wednesday, March 27 after pleading guilty to intentional strangulation and assault causing actual bodily harm.

On February 3rd, Williams assaulted his ex-partner, grabbing her by the throat and strangling her until she couldn’t breathe.

She tried to escape but Williams continued the attack, punching her to her face and legs.

Williams then strangled her again and prevented her from leaving, threatening to kill her while she screamed for help.

He was jailed for two years and four months.

Detective Constable Katy Hughes said: “This was an awful and violent attack which made the victim fear for her life.

"Her bravery throughout this investigation should be commended.

“It is our priority to tackle all reports of violence against women and we will continue to bring offenders to justice.

“I would urge anyone who is experiencing domestic abuse or violence to report it to us or reach out to a support agency.

"We will listen to you and investigate any report fully.”
