A man who attacked his partner and threatened that she would “end up in a box” if she finished with him has been jailed.

Marcus Osbourne, of Church Street in Paddock, was sentenced to 16 weeks in jail over the assault.

The thug had only recently been released from prison after a vicious attack on a previous girlfriend which left her with a broken jaw.

He pleaded guilty to assault when he appeared at Kirklees Magistrates’ Court today (Wednesday).

The incident happened at an address in Smithy Lane in Moldgreen on December 2.

During a row Osbourne grabbed Patricia Fill by the hair, dragged her into the kitchen and slammed her face into the wall.

Prosecutor Alex Bozman said: “He said: ‘Do you want me to kill you?’

“This happened a number of times and he made a hole in the kitchen wall.

“He said if she finished with him she’d end up in a box.”

There were two children in the house at the time of the incident, magistrates were told.

Ms Fill said she was scared to end the relationship because of the 27-year-old’s temper.

The court heard that in January 2013 Osbourne was jailed for nearly five years for an offence of causing grievous bodily harm with intent.

Leeds Crown Court heard that Osbourne grabbed his then girlfriend Chloe Jervis by the throat and threw her against a wall, breaking her jaw.

The attack started at the couple’s Newsome home after Osbourne snatched her phone to see who she was texting.

Miss Jervis was gasping for breath after he grabbed her by the throat and then threw her into a wall when she told him that their relationship was over.

She broke her jaw in three places and had to have an operation to have a metal plate inserted.

Osbourne also has a previous conviction for robbery from 2008.

He was released on licence from his four years and 10 months jail term in June.

Following the more recent attack he has been recalled to prison.

He is now not due for release until November 2017.

His solicitor Jonathan Slawinski said: “His battle will now be with the parole board trying to convince them that, although this is a domestic-related offence, he ought to be released.”

Magistrates sentenced him to 16 weeks in jail for new offence.
