Investigating officer, Detective Constable Dominique Swift, said: “The victim in this case was subjected to shocking and horrific abuse over the course of her relationship with Patchett.

“She was incredibly courageous to come forward and report his behaviour and crimes, which have had a lasting physical and emotional impact upon her.

“I welcome the sentencing which sends a clear message that such brutal acts of violence will be punished.

“Tackling violence against women is a priority for North Wales Police and we will not stop in our efforts to bring perpetrators of domestic violence to justice.

“We are listening to victims of domestic abuse and hope that this sentence will encourage others who might be reading this to come forward and speak to us.”
