husband who subjected his wife to a tirade of abuse for eighteen years has been jailed for more than two years. David Andrew Rees, 52, pleaded guilty to controlling behaviour in an intimate relationship and assault occasioning actual bodily harm.

His trial of abuse began when when he married his wife 18 years ago when he accused his wife of infidelity after he saw her hug a cousin to comfort him, Manchester Evening News reported.Rees, from Cheshire, once threw her beloved cat out of the window and shaved part of his wife's head down to her scalp "for a joke".He would regularly accuse her of going to hotels with other men while she was working a night shift, prosecutor Brian Berlyne said."He did not like her speaking to her family," said Mr Berlyne. "She would shorten her conversations on the phone [with her family] and Rees placed phone tracking applications on her mobile."He mistreated her pet cats, knowing she was attached to them.

In 2014, he threw one of them out of the window of their flat onto a roof before his wife climbed out to retrieve it. "Rees would scream and shout at her complaining that she gave the cats more attention than him, saying she loved them more than him."Minshull Street Crown Court heard that Rees used amphetamines, was a "heavy drinker" and would play very loud music.
