A woman from Cape Town has been left with her hair chopped and face partially scalped after she decided to respond to her husband’s pleas to come home.
According to the reports, the couple lived separately after the man committed an attack on his wife. Later, he sent their two daughters to see their mother with a letter pleasantly asking her to come back.
When the woman arrived, her husband almost immediately ripped off her clothes and raped her in what appeared to be a jealous rage.
After that, the suspected abuser appeared in the regional court that sentenced him to 26 years behind bars. This week, the man appealed the decision in Cape Town High Court, claiming that the sex had been consensual. However, Judge Derek Wille was adamant and agreed with his regional colleagues, accepting their decision.
