Alex Skeel, whose girlfriend, Jordan Worth, has since been jailed for seven and a half years, in an interview with Daily Mail narrated the details of the abuse he suffered in the hand of the lady he was dating.
On his abuse, 22-year-old man said;
“I thought my limbs might have to be amputated. It was three years of mental abuse and then it turned physical. I was infected from the burns pretty much all over my body. Luckily, they managed to treat it.
“She would constantly say that this was the way to do things. And because I was wooed by her, flattered, I believed her. But it wasn’t normal. She wanted to basically change who I was.
“My family said that they knew the mental abuse was going on, but didn’t know about the physical violence.
“She kept me away from them for two years. I have a very loving family and loving parents and she wouldn’t allow me to talk to them.
“She would hit me, threw boiling water on me and stabbed me in the arms and said that I’ve been speaking to my family, but I hadn’t.”
Skeel who was 16 when he met his girlfriend in 2012, was stabbed with a knife, scalded with boiling water, banned from their bed, and his girlfriend also decided what clothes he should wear.
Worth, who lived with Skeel in the village of Stewartby, Bedfordshire, also isolated him from his friends and took over his Facebook account.
Jordan Worth came from a loving and supportive family and was a high performer at school. She graduated from the University of Hertfordshire with a 2:1 Honours Degree in Fine Arts and wanted to become a teacher.
Jordan, 22, had been involved in caring and voluntary work for unwanted animals and had raised money for children in Africa.
