Scumbag boyfriend throttled partner with dog lead as part of sick humiliation

A jealous man throttled his partner with a dog lead while repeatedly punching her and kicking her in the face at home.

Lincoln Parks, 60, carried out the lengthy assault while telling his partner that he wanted her to soil herself, something the judge described as a "gratuitous degradation" of his victim.

The man already had a previous conviction for inflicting grievous bodily harm with intent on the same partner, as well as convictions for beating up a colleague with a spanner and attacking a taxi driver.

Cardiff Crown Court heard that Parkes and his long-term partner were at home when he confronted her about a Facebook message that had popped up on her phone.

Parkes reportedly didn't see what the message contained but saw that it was from a male.

He was told by his partner that it was just a message from a colleague, but he accused her of lying and became increasingly angry.

The sick man then grabbed a dog lead and put it around his partner's neck and pulled it as tight as he could – telling her he wanted her to soil herself.

Parkes then proceeded to punch her repeatedly before picking up a metal dog lead and strangling her to the point she was finding it hard to breathe.

The vicious assault ended with Parkes kicking his partner in the face, the court heard.

It is understood that the victim did not report the attack to the police at first, but attended the University Hospital of Wales a week later where staff saw extensive bruising to her arms, face and back.

When police spoke to the woman, she continued to deny any assault out of fear of repercussions.

The court heard a victim impact statement submitted by the woman which said the brutal assault had left her suffering flashbacks, having trouble sleeping and with a lack of confidence.
