A man is facing a crown court jury after being accused of coercive control and a domestic assault.
Jamie Devenney, 36, has been charged with actual bodily harm toward his girlfriend earlier this month. He is also accused of damaging her property.
Devenney, of St Peter’s Way, Corby, is also said to have controlled her by taking her phone, laptop and house keys as well as preventing her from talking to her friends and family.
He made his first appearance before magistrates in Northampton last Monday (April 18) and was bailed to appear at Northampton Crown Court for trial.
