'10 days from death': Male domestic abuse survivor describes horrific ordeal as former girlfriend is jailed


A male survivor of domestic violence said he was "10 days away from death" after he was repeatedly physically and psychologically abused by his girlfriend.

Alex Skeel was battered, stabbed, burned, denied food, forced to sleep on the floor and kept away from his family by Jordan Worth before he was finally rescued by police last year.

The 22-year-old is now urging other victims to speak out after Worth, also 22, was jailed for seven years after pleading guilty to GBH with intent at Luton Crown Court.

Worth, of Stewardby, Bedfordshire, was given a further six-month sentence for coercive and controlling behaviour. Police said it was the first such conviction in the UK where the offender was female.

The couple had known each other since they were 16, but during the last nine months of their relationship, Skeel said Worth subjected him to a "sustained and prolonged" campaign of abuse.

1. I personally know two men who stayed married to women who constantly abuses them

One burned her hubby with her iron and the other stabbed him with her high heel. Iíve asked both why they donít leave and fear is the number one reason. And both said financial reasons.

2. Obviously its less frequent that a male is the victim of abuse

However in those situations the options are fewer, and youíre far more likely to get ridicule than sympathy.
