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."
