Rapist ripped woman’s face from her skull during horrific attack

Anthony Laine. A sadistic rapist who brutally battered a woman so badly the front of her face became completely detached from her SKULL has been jailed for 12 years. See NTI story NTITHUG. Evil Anthony Laine, 30, was sleeping in a tent when he launched the horrific assault near the River Severn in Bewdley, Worcs., in August last year. A court heard the vile thug raped the victim twice and beat her so badly her skull was smashed into two pieces. The woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was left with a "floating face" - a medical term for when the front of the face becomes detached from the skull. Her injuries were so severe that doctors compared them to those suffered during a car crash or as a result of "a high velocity impact with heavy object". Laine pleaded guilty to two charges of rape and inflicting grievous bodily harm with intent at Worcester Crown Court on Friday (23/2).

A man has been jailed for 12 years after he attacked a woman so badly that her face became completely detached from her skull.

Anthony Laine, 30, raped the woman twice near the River Severn in Bewdley, Worcestershire last summer.

The woman was left with a ‘floating face’ – a medical term for when the front of the face becomes detached from the skull.

He pleaded guilty to two counts of rape and inflicting GBH with intent at Worcester Crown Court.

She said via a recorded video statement: ‘It’s ruined my life. I come across as a strong person. I’m not really. I’m looking at lots more operations, lots more time in hospital.

‘I’m in constant pain. I can’t eat properly. I have to eat soft food. I can’t chew anything at all. I can’t eat meat or even toast. I can’t open my mouth to yawn.’

She added: ‘I’m still alive, that’s the only thing. I’m fed up with the pain. That’s what gets me down more than anything.’

Prosecutor Timothy Sapwell said she suffered a 4ins cut down the middle of her forehead, a v-shaped cut over her right eye and another over her left eye.

Both eyes were also swollen shut and her eyelids had to be cut open to relieve pressure on her eyes.

A CT scan at hospital revealed serious underlying fractures to her face called ‘Le Fort Fractures’.

One of the fractures ran above her teeth and upper jaw with another running from the bridge of her nose across the floor of the eye socket to the hinge of her jaw.

Mr Sapwell said: ‘The front of the face was completely detached from the skull and smashed in two. It’s described in medical terms as floating face.’

The court heard her injuries required a nine and a half hour operation where bone grafts from other parts of the skull were used to repair her nose.

Metal plates and screws were also put into her eye sockets, her cheek and jawbone during the surgery.

The victim, who has no feeling in her top lip, also said she doesn’t like leaving the house because she feels people are looking at her.

Speaking about her attacker, she added: ‘Words can’t express how scared I am.’

The court heard Laine was seen by a witness running from the scene and sustained injuries to his hands in the attack.

But he claimed in a police interview he had ‘only punched her four or five times’.

This article is horrifically terrorble-grahic subject wise. The details only focus on the injuries and stay away from the surrounding events like the acquaintance meeting. Drug use. Criminal history.
Hannibal Lechter kind of damages, but in the movie those victims had done something to bring them that damage. "Art imitating life, imitating art".
