JAILED: Bradford man 'demolished' side of partner's face after telling her 'you're going to die tonight'

A MAN who "demolished" the side of his partner's face after telling her "you're going to die tonight" has been jailed for five years.
Michael Dann, 23, tried to strangle young mum Rebecca Hornby before knocking her out with a heavy punch, Bradford Crown Court heard.
Miss Hornby suffered a fractured eye socket and cheekbone in the vicious attack at her home in Bradford on July 25 last year.
Prosecutor Abigail Langford said yesterday that Miss Hornby went to a neighbour for help when she regained consciousness.
Dann, of Knowles Lane, Holme Wood, Bradford, who had convictions for violence towards police officers, at first claimed Miss Hornby attacked him with a hammer or an axe.
But when his case was due to be tried last month, he pleaded guilty to inflicting grievous bodily harm with intent.
Miss Langford said the couple's previously happy relationship deteriorated following a family tragedy in late 2014.
On the day of the attack, they met up for a meal and drinks but Miss Hornby sensed an atmosphere and, after they returned home, the mood deteriorated.
Dann slapped Miss Hornby and she told him to leave the house.
He left but came back and tried to wrestle her phone from her.
At one point, Dann put both his hands around Miss Hornby's neck, saying: "You're going to die tonight."
She managed to break free but he swung a punch that struck her left eye socket.
"She described that blow as being without warning and she felt like she had been blinded. She couldn't see out of her left eye and said the pain was indescribable," Miss Langford said.
