A court hearing at Swansea Crown Court has unveiled the disturbing details of a case where a man, Dean Rees, attacked his partner out of jealousy and bitterness.

The assault occurred after Rees barged into the woman’s house, accusing her of having another man there.

The court heard how the victim feared for her life during the attack and worried about the well-being of her children.

The Toxic Relationship and Verbal Abuse:

Rees and the woman had been in a relationship for approximately a year, which was described as toxic.

Rees harbored baseless suspicions of his partner’s infidelity.

Leading up to the assault, he bombarded her with a series of offensive and abusive text messages, including expressing hopes that she would develop cancer.

The Violent Incident:

Tensions escalated on September 22, when Rees demanded that his partner prove her solitary presence in her Llanelli home by filming each room on her phone.

Dissatisfied with her compliance, Rees traveled from Swansea to her address and forcefully entered the property, even using a metal bar or wrench to hammer on the door.

Once inside, he physically assaulted her, pushing her onto the sofa and choking her with one hand while covering her nose and mouth with the other.

Emergency Call and Arrest:

Unbeknownst to Rees, the woman had managed to dial emergency services (999) and kept the call connected, allowing the call-handler to hear the disturbance.

After the assault, Rees left the premises but was swiftly apprehended by responding officers.

Initially providing a false name, he later denied the strangulation allegation, claiming it was fabricated.

Impact and Sentencing:

In her impact statement read to the court, the victim expressed her fear that Rees would kill her and leave her three children without a mother.

Rees, having been convicted of criminal damage and intentional strangulation at trial, received a two-year prison sentence.

He will serve half of the term in custody, followed by release on license under community supervision.

Additionally, a restraining order was imposed, prohibiting any contact between Rees and the victim for the next five years.

Conclusion:

The court’s decision reflects the severity of the offense and the lasting impact on the victim.

The judge emphasized Rees’s jealousy and bitterness, dismissing any claims of enticement or invitation.

The lack of remorse displayed by the defendant further solidified the court’s stance.

Rees’s imprisonment serves as an opportunity for reflection and reintegration into society, but it is crucial to ensure the safety and well-being of the victim through the restraining order.
