A woman sustained severe injuries after being repeatedly punched, throttled and thrown to the ground by her violent partner in Fife.
The victim suffered a fractured eye socket in the brutal assault by Michael Munro, 32, from Kelty and currently a prisoner at Perth.
He admitted at Dunfermline Sheriff Court that on October 18 at Keltyhill Road, Kelty, he assaulted his partner, by jumping on top of her, causing her to fall to the ground, sat astride her, seized her by the throat, repeatedly punched her in the head and threw her to the ground, all to her severe injury.
The victim suffered dizziness, blurred vision and severe headaches and it was feared she had bleeding in her brain.
Depute fiscal Claire Bremner said the woman bit his finger in a bid to defend herself.
A neighbour heard the noise and went to their door but left when there was no response.
Munro went downstairs and the victim thought he had left the house.
She tried to phone for help but Munro reappeared and became angry again and the frightened woman picked up a knife.
He was laughing at her and was filming her on the phone, the court heard. He then threw her on the floor.
Munro later claimed to police his partner had assaulted him and he was “too scared to go back there”.
Munro will be sentenced on March 10.
