THE PROSECUTION ASKED FOR THE NAME OF THE VICTIM TO BE LEFT OUT OF THE COPY AS HE HE IS PARTICULARLY VULNERABLE. FOR THAT REASON WE WERE ASKED TO LEAVE OUT THE FULL ADDRESS AND SAY THAT THE OFFENCES HAPPENED AT THE COUPLE’S HOME IN THE VILLAGE OF STEWARTBY, BEDS. A woman who made her partner’s life a misery with her violence which included scalding him with boiling water and stabbing him been jailed for seven-and-a-half-years. She banned him from their bed, kept food from him, decided what clothes he could wear, isolated him from friends and family and even took over his Facebook account. Luton crown court was told there were two sides to 22 year old Jordan Worth. She came from a loving and supportive family and at school had been a high performer, gymnast and coach. At the University of Hertfordshire she gained a 2:1 Honours Degree in Fine Arts and wanted to become a teacher. She had been involved in caring and voluntary work for unwanted animals and had raised money children in Africa But at their home in the village of Stewartby in Bedfordshire, petite Worth cruelly controlled every aspect of her partner’s life. She appeared at court on Friday (13/4) to plead guilty to controlling or coercive behaviour in an intimate relationship, wounding with intent and causing grievous bodily harm with intent. The court heard Worth and her partner had met at college in 2012 when they were both 16. A relationship began and later they moved in together but, said prosecutor Maryam Syed, from an early stage she was exercising control over him deciding what he could wear. But worse was to come the court was told as she became violent towards the man, who the court heard suffered from hydrocephalus which is caused by a buildup of fluid inside the skull which made him vulnerable. She used blunt objects to strike him, wounded him with a knife and didn’t help him get to hospital for treatment. For nine months he couldn’t sleep in the same bed as her, the court was told. Judge Nic Madge hearing the case was told the charge of controlling or coercive behaviour covered a period from April of 2016 to June of last year when police were called to the couple’s home in Stewartby. Neighbours of the couple often heard them arguing said Miss Syed and the sounds of things being thrown in the house. She said the victim was heard by his neighbours shouting at Worth: “Get off me, you are hurting me” He was seen on occasions with black eyes and to be limping and with his arm in sling. Once Worth was seen at window by a neighbour “armed” with a screwdriver or hammer, the court was told. Another neighbour heard the victim shouting “Get off me. Get off my head. Don’t keep doing that to my head.” She saw burn marks on his arms which he explained away as self-inflicted. The court heard it was in June of last year that neighbours called police to the couple’s home in the village in the early hours after hearing shouting. The ambulance crew noted injuries to his hand, burns to arms and legs which were being self treated with cling film. There was cling film round his ankles, and a hand wound that was bleeding. He was taken to Bedford Hospital’s acute clinical unit and then to Addenbrookes Hospital. The prosecutor said he had second and third degree burns which will leave permanent scarring. She went on “Five per cent of his total body surface was scalded.” The court was told Worth had thrown boiling hot water over her partner. On 6 June he was examined at the Lister Hospital in Stevenage and found to have burns on his legs as well as stab wounds about his body and limbs. Days later Worth was arrested. The court heard the couple are no longer together and Worth, who is in a new relationship, has been living at an address in Lynn Road, Ingoldisthorpe, Norfolk. Passing sentence Judge Madge told Worth that as well as the violence she had carried out on her partner she had refused him adequate bedding and food. He said she would “belittle” her partner and discouraged him from contacting friends and his family. “She accepts that she has in the past, on a number of occasions, used blunt objects and implements to strike him and that he suffered injuries as a result of her doing so. She accepts using boiling or hot water to cause injury to him. She accepts that she has in the past used a knife to cause injury to her partner, “ said the judge. He said Worth had not allowed him to sleep in the same bed as her for 9 months. The judge said “He suffered from hydrocephalus and had a vulnerable head and he became increasingly isolated. You took over his Facebook profile. There were daily arguments with items being thrown in house.” Judge Madge said “Custody is inevitable.” He jailed her for a total of seven-and-a-half years. She was made the subject of a restraining order which prevents her from contacting her ex for an indefinite period. Ends

Abusive girlfriend

A controlling and abusive girlfriend who put her boyfriend through the worst ever by assaulting him, depriving him of food, and banning him from their bed, has been jailed.

Jordan Worth, 22, was handed a seven-and-a-half-year sentence at Luton Crown Court on Friday after she admitted to carrying out several cruel acts against her ex-boyfriend. The college sweethearts had started dating in 2012 when they were both teenagers, 16, but there were worrying signs from the beginning, the court heard.

The court heard how Jordan, a university graduate, scalded her boyfriend with boiling water and stabbed him at their home in the village of Stewartby, in Bedfordshire, England. The boyfriend suffered from hydrocephalus that was caused by a build-up of fluid inside the skull and made him vulnerable.

In addition to the violence, Jordan also decided what clothes her boyfriend was allowed to wear. It was also reported that she did not let him sleep in their bed for nine months and also took over his Facebook account. It got worse when she began using objects to strike him, wounding him with a knife and then failing to get him any medical help.

The campaign of abuse ended in June when neighbours called police to the couple’s home in the early hours after hearing shouting. The ambulance crew noted injuries to his hand, burns to arms and legs that were being self-treated with cling film. There was also cling film round his ankles, and a hand wound that was bleeding.

The boyfriend was immediately taken to the hospital where it was discovered he had second and third degree burns that left permanent scarring and “5% of his total body surface was scalded.”

Neighbours added they had often heard the couple arguing and the victim was seen on occasions with black eyes, a limp, and with his arm in sling.

A neighbor told how Jordan was once seen at a window “armed” with a screwdriver or hammer. Jordan was later arrested and admitted charges of controlling or coercive behaviour in an intimate relationship, wounding with intent and causing grievous bodily harm with intent.

The court heard Jordan, who is now in a new relationship, had two sides and came from a loving and supportive family and had previously carried out voluntary work. She was made the subject of a restraining order which prevents her from contacting her ex for an indefinite period. Jordan had discouraged her former partner from contacting his family during the abusive relationship.

Judge Nic Madge said:

“She accepts that she has in the past, on a number of occasions, used blunt objects and implements to strike him and that he suffered injuries as a result of her doing so. She accepts using boiling or hot water to cause injury to him.”
