A violent and abusive woman who abused and assaulted her husband for 20 years has been jailed. Sheree Spencer, 45, was a heavy drinker and punched, kicked and slapped her husband in fits that left him feeling trapped.

A court was told how Spencer once hit her husband with a wine bottle, leaving him with a “cauliflower” ear and a chipped elbow. She was known to drink up to three bottles of wine a day.

As reported by The Mirror, Hull Crown Court heard how the attacks left her husband living in fear and despair. Police received 43 photographs of injuries inflicted by Spencer and two hours of recorded incidents.

Spencer, of Beals Close, Market Weighton in East Yorkshire, admitted to coercive and controlling behavior between January 2016 and June 2021. She also admitted to three offenses of assaulting her husband, causing actual bodily harm, between January and April 2020.

Michele Stuart-Lofthouse, the prosecutor, said they had been together as a couple since 2000 and had three young children together. Spencer’s violent behavior was revealed after she alerted the police.

During one incident, Spencer, a former Justice Ministry employee, spat on her husband and grabbed him by the neck, causing him to have difficulty breathing. Her behavior had changed while the couple lived in London and she became aggressive, pushing and slapping him.
