A man who became angry that his girlfriend suffered a miscarriage, decided to beat his partner and call her a murderer, according to police in the United Kingdom.
Now, 28-year-old Luke Adams of Congleton, is facing many years in prison after pleading guilty to three counts of assault by beating.
According to the criminal complaint, Adams lived with his girlfriend for three years. At some point, the girlfriend became pregnant, but later suffered a miscarriage.
Adams became very angry, claiming that his girlfriend was a murderer for killing his baby. He assaulted her on multiple occasions, the court heard.
One day, Adams became violent because he did not like the fact that the victim was smoking electronic cigarettes. Adams grabbed her by the head and threw her into a kitchen cupboard while accusing her of murdering their baby.
He went upstairs and followed her into a bedroom. He pushed her face into a pillow and grabbed her throat. The second assault happened two weeks later, following a night of drinking with his friends.
When he became verbally abusive, she went to sleep in the car.
On her way out of the home, he kicked and dragged her on the ground, and he then choked her with both hands. The third assault occurred last month.
Adams asked her for a drink, and when she refused to serve him, he pinned her to the couch.
