A VIOLENT man who left his girlfriend covered in bruises after subjecting her to a nine-hour attack is today beginning a spell behind bars.

Chudi Eze was sentenced to 18 months in jail at Ipswich Crown Court after a jury found him guilty of beating up Kelly Stammers.

The 28-year-old, of Fore Street, Ipswich, left his girlfriend battered and bruised as a result of the ordeal, during which she screamed at Eze to get let her go.

Miss Stammers had told the court that she and Eze had visited an Ipswich nightclub on the evening prior to the attack in May last year.

Throughout the trial Eze, who had previously been involved in a violent attack on a man five years ago, denied assaulting Miss Stammers.

He maintained she received her injuries during a drunken fight with another woman at an Ipswich nightclub.

However, jurors disagreed and found him guilty of the attack.
