An angry chef who threw his girlfriend to the floor and tried to put her eyes out after complaining about her cooking over curry has been in prison for 18 months.
Christopher Carr, 27, tipped the meal in the sink and was asked by his partner to leave last month, Durham Crown Court, sitting in Newcastle, heard.
Chris Baker, the prosecutor, said Carr refused and that his girlfriend used a pan to try to break a bottle of gin he drank.
Carr threw her hair on the floor, sat on her and tried to put her eyes out, the court heard.
27-year-old Christopher Carr of County Durham was sentenced to 18 months in prison for violating a four-month suspended sentence imposed in late October
Mr. Baker said she managed to flee upstairs and tried to send a message for help while Carr was on the phone with his mother claiming he had done nothing wrong.
His partner shouted something else, causing Carr to grab and hit her, again trying to put out her eyes, before repeatedly hitting and stamping on her while using a table to hit her on the back.
The noise made neighbors in Evansleigh Road, Consett, come out of their homes, see what was going on, and rush in to help the victim.
She was taken to hospital with black, swollen eyes and a severely bruised body.
In a victim statement read to the court, she described that she was scared and terrified of the ordeal she thought would be murdered.
She said the defendant had been violent against her in the past, but never as bad as this attack, which took place on March 28.

Carr confirmed to the police that there was a disagreement, but initially claimed he was acting in self-defense.
He denied inflicting serious bodily harm after the Crown accepted his guilty plea for sexual assault, which had caused physical injury, violating a four-month suspended prison sentence in late October.
Richard Herrmann said soothingly, “It was a nasty attack from which she remained battered and bruised amid a sometimes fleeting relationship.”
Mr. Herrmann said that his client works as a chef in a County Durham hotel and that this would be his first encounter with a custodial sentence.
Judge James Adkin was in prison for 18 months and told Carr that his partner had suffered a “substantial spanking.”
A condition for his half sentence release prohibits further contact with the victim.
