Woman jailed for controlling and injuring her partner

Jordan Worth was jailed for seven and a half years after pleading guilty to controlling or coercive behaviour in an intimate relationship, wounding with intent and causing grievous bodily harm.

Ms Worth, 22, controlled her partner at their Bedfordshire home and caused significant injuries including stabbing him and causing second and third degree burns which will leave permanent scarring.

The couple met in 2012 whilst they were at college and both 16 years old. Worth began exercising control at an early stage in the relationship by telling the victim what he could and couldn’t wear.

Violence included striking with a blunt object, wounding with a knife, scalding with boiling water and not seeking medical assistance for the injuries. The controlling/coercive behaviour occurred between April 2016 and June 2017.

The case was initially prosecuted by David Matthew and then by Maryam Syed. Click here for more details.
