A MAN who attacked his partner and her stepmother, while screaming he was going to 'kill them all,' has been jailed.

Karl Adams, 32, of The Paddock, Apse Heath, admitted two counts of assault and one count of obstructing a police officer when he appeared at the Isle of Wight Magistrates' Court.

The court heard Adams, who had been drinking, became violent at his partner's Shanklin home, on December 27.

Her father, stepmother and 14-year-old son were also at the property.

Prosecutor Ann Smout said: "Her stepmother discovered Adams in the kitchen, extremely drunk.

"He was repeatedly shouting and cursing and kept yelling he was going to 'sort everyone out.'

"His partner insisted he leave the house. He was screaming, 'I'm not leaving this house, I'm going to kill them all.'

"The 'them' he was referring to was a group of people he believed had been rude to his partner earlier in the week.

"Adams then punched the stepmother to the left side of her face, sending her flying backwards.

"He began advancing towards his partner until the confrontation was interrupted by her 14-year-old son."

The court the police were called, and Adams repeatedly resisted attempts to handcuff him.

Liz Miller, defending, said: "He tells me he has had a lot of problems with drinking in the past.

"He is especially upset as he used to get on really well with his partner's son and feels awful he put him through that."

Adams was sentenced to 12 weeks in prison and ordered to pay a £122 surcharge.
