A 52-year-old man who attacked and choked his partner on Christmas Day has been convicted of assault at Calderdale Magistrates Court.
Prosecutor Lisa Beadle told the court that Clinton Nicklin of Russell Street, Todmorden, attacked his partner after tensions escalated on December 25, 2014.
Ms Beadle said Nicklin pushed his partner to the floor and began kicking her on her left thigh. Nicklin punched her arm and pushed a cushion hard against her face, telling her he wanted her to die. He slapped her hard across the face and held her around the throat before their grown-up son intervened.
Ms Beadle added: “It happened very quickly and it was very violent.”
Chair of Magistrates John Bassinder told Nicklin: “This was a nasty assault - hopefully you will be able to see that nothing like this ever happens again.”
Nicklin was handed a 12 month supervision order and ordered to pay a £75 fine, £85 costs and a £60 victim surcharge.
