A woman whose eyes were gouged out by her partner said today he "robbed me of one of the most precious things in life". 33 year old Shane Jenkin admitted the attack on 31-year-old mother-of-two Tina Nash at Truro Crown Court. Attempts to save the sight in one of her eyes failed and she was left completely blind.
In a statement Mrs Nash said:
Shane Jenkin was originally charged with attempted murder but admitted GBH at the court today. He will be sentenced next month.
Detective Inspector Chris Strickland, of Devon and Cornwall Police, said Jenkin carried out a "premeditated, sustained and vicious attack on a defenceless woman".
