Juke Marsh, 28, had admitted assault, actual bodily harm and criminal damage when he appeared before Shrewsbury Crown Court on Thursday.

The court heard that the charges related to violence in May and June last year.

Recorder Julian Taylor heard that Marsh, of no fixed address, had been in a relationship with the woman for eight weeks before he attacked her twice in consecutive months.

The court was told that the first incident on May 23 last year saw Marsh spit at his former partner, before he punched her as he held her down on a bed. He also smashed her TV.
