A man appeared before magistrates in Lynn on Wednesday facing three charges of attacking his RAF officer wife.
Salim Abdulla, of Fen Road, Upper Marham, admitted two offences of assault by beating and one of common assault.
Yvonne Neill, prosecuting, said Abdulla had been in a relationship with his victim for five years and they were married in November, 2012. His wife said she had suffered physical violence throughout their relationship.
On December 27, he became angry while they were at her mother’s home and pushed her against a wall, said Ms Neill. On January 5 and January 7, he was violent towards after receiving a letter saying his Jobseeker’s Allowance had been stopped due to information that he had been working. He threatened to kill her if it was her or her mother who informed on him
Alison Muir, for Abdulla, said her client had been unable to find work and found it difficult to be dependent on his wife, an RAF officer. He loved her but realised it was probably far too late to put things right. He was motivated to seek help.
The case was adjourned until Wednesday, January 30, for pre-sentence reports to be prepared.
