Officials Disturbed By Man’s Reasoning For Nearly Beating His Girlfriend To Death

A young woman from Glasgow, Scotland has lived to tell her tale of an absolutely horrific experience, but she can rest a little easier now that her tormenter is behind bars. As the Daily Mail reports, that tormenter just happened to be her boyfriend at the time, and he absolutely lost his mind over a missing pack of cigarettes.

Kelsie Skillen, 18, had returned home for the evening with the man, 19-year-old James McCourt, and he suddenly noticed he didn’t have his cigarettes where he thought they were. That somehow became Kelsie’s fault, and he flew into a fit of rage.

“During the incident I kept saying 'Is it worth going to jail?' and he said 'I don't care if I go to jail as long as you're dead.' I remember thinking, he is trying to kill me. He is dangerous,” she explained.

She went onto explain the terrifying details of her night of hell during his sentencing.

“He said it was my fault, I had left his jacket, then he just flipped and grabbed me and attacked me. He had his knees oh my chest so I couldn't get up and was punching me,” she continued.

Kelsie also explained that McCourt seemed to be getting some kind of perverse delight over her pain.

“Eventually I realised the more I kept screaming he more he retaliated and attacked me, eventually I got to the point I stopped and he wasn't getting the reaction he wanted. That was when he started pouring the water over me. I drifted in and out of consciousness during the incident so I didn't realise it had been going on for so long,” she explained.

She was able to use some quick thinking to escape his wrath, but the damage had already been done as evidenced by photos of her bruised and battered face and body.

“My iPad only had two per cent battery so I had to be quick, I was panicking and managed to get in touch with my mum. When she turned up I quickly ran to the buzzer - then he ran away,” she said.

Amazingly, McCourt was only sentenced to 21 months for the brutal assault.
