A man has been jailed for five years for beating and raping his wife at their home in the Midlands in January of last year.

She told the court she was sure her life was over and that she did not resist sex because she was afraid.

Mr Justice Paul Butler said a "tragic feature" of the case was that the victim's family relationships have since been completely destroyed.
