A violent alcoholic who subjected her disabled step-dad to a series of attacks in his Halifax home has been jailed for four years.

Anna Benages’ campaign of violence against 44-year-old Peter Davy culminated in a sustained attack with a plank of wood and a claw hammer after she had drunk six litres of cider.

Mr Davy said Benages, who had also beaten him with the same piece of wood just four days earlier, suddenly “flipped” and launched another attack on him as he sat on the sofa at his home in Backhold Drive, Siddal.
