Appeal dismissed for man who blinded Hayle woman
A MAN who blinded his girlfriend in an horrific attack at her home has had his appeal against sentence dismissed by the Court of Appeal in London.
Shane Jenkin was given an indefinite life sentence with a minimum term of six years in May this year after he admitted inflicting grievous bodily harm with intent on Tina Nash.
During a prolonged attack at her home in Hayle in April 2011, Jenkin had strangled the mother-of-two unconscious in her bed, gouged out her eyes and left her with a fractured jaw and broken nose.
At the Court of Appeal in London today, Jenkin, 33, from Penzance, had appealed against his sentence but his case was thrown out by Lord Chief Justice Mr Justice Mitting and Mr Justice Griffin.
