A man has been jailed for ten and a half years for abusing his ex-girlfriend, both physically and mentally, during their relationship.

Daniel Kane of Scariff House, Waterville Terrace, Blanchardstown, Dublin was convicted of coercive control, intimidation and multiple assault charges.

During the 22-day trial, the jury heard distressing evidence about what life with Daniel Kane was like for the woman.

She outlined how he regularly beat and berated her, but also took control of all aspects of her life, including her finances and access to friends and family.

He broke her arm, slashed her face with a pizza slicer, put a cigarette out on her foot, regularly punched her in the face, head butted and strangled her.

After his trial, the 53-year-old also admitted trying to get her to withdraw her statement through manipulative phone calls he made to her from prison.

Judge Elma Sheahan said his failure at any stage to accept his wrongdoing and the harm he caused was particularly troubling.
