A jealous man has been imprisoned for at least four years by a cruel encroachment on his ex-girlfriend's new lover in regional Victoria.
Dylan Moyle, then 20, entered the victim's home on 11 November last year, grabbed an ax, and repeatedly hit the 21-year-old man's head, limbs, and torso.
The attack came after months of jealousy, as Moyle & ex 39; s ex-girlfriend went to live with the victim in early 2018.
& # 39; During their entire relationship you remained completely jealous and you harbored an enormous hostility towards (the victim), & # 39; said County Court of Victoria Judge Gregory Lyon during Thursday's conviction.

In January of that year, Moyle sent a message to his victim, saying that he could expect & # 39; a knife in his guts & # 39 ;.
Then in September 2018, Moyle posted on social media that he would come back with his ex-girlfriend and & # 39; her current murdered & # 39 ;.
The victim had to undergo seven hours of surgery.
& # 39; Although he remained conscious, (the victim) lost a huge amount of blood and was firmly convinced that he would die, & # 39; said Judge Lyon.
& # 39; He accepted that his death was inevitable. & # 39;
The victim suffered a number of injuries, including a fracture at the base of his skull, broken ribs and a finger, cracks in his chest wall, a bursting eardrum, facial nerve damage and a broken cheekbone.
He also suffered from tendon damage to his left forearm that needed a metal plate and screws, permanently limiting the use of his left hand.
Moyle was arrested later on the day of the attack and made full recognition that he & # 39; something terrible & # 39; had done.
The attacker then abused ice, GHB and Xanax, added Judge Lyon, and was & # 39; hardly sleeping & # 39; and & # 39; overwhelmed by anger & # 39 ;.
Moyle at the time had a community correction order for posting on Facebook that he was going to do a mass shooting.

& # 39; Your use of the ax as a weapon was unannounced. Yet this was a cruel and sustained attack, "Judge Lyon said.
& # 39; He was completely defenseless against your behavior.
& # 39; It is impossible to say how long the psychic scars stay with him. & # 39;
Moyle, now 21, pleaded guilty to intentionally causing serious injury.
He was sentenced to six years and eight months in prison, but must serve four years and two months before he is eligible for release on conditional release.
