A Kent man has been given an indeterminate sentence for the attempted murder of his ex girlfriend.
Ian Deer, formally of Blenheim Drive in Hawkinge has been told he must serve at least eight years before he'll be considered for parole.
The 24 year old admitted attacking the 19 year old during an incident at their home in June last year.
Senior investigating officer, DI Trevor Fleming said: "This was a determined and vicious attack, which during my 29 years I have not seen the like.
The victim showed a great deal of courage throughout and was with me in the Court this morning to see this sentence, which reflected the very serious nature of the offence.
"This brave young woman is now rebuilding her life and I wish her well. Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate will continue pursue domestic offenders such as this in supporting Kent Police's intolerance of Domestic Abuse."
