A Delaware court has sentenced a man to 25 years in prison for stalking and later brutally abusing his girlfriend and the mother of their son. On February 12, 2016, the accused threw Emily Hill, 26, on the floor and strangled her till she blacked out. He went on to whip her with a cable, beat her until her eardrums ruptured and stab her in the arm with a kitchen knife.
Hill was being stalked by Wayne E Carter Jr, 25 for months into their relationship. She claimed that he would mistreat and hurt her whenever possible. He would stop her in stairwells and push her down the stairs or suddenly appear in the rear-view mirror as she picked up their four-year-old son, Harlem, from daycare.
Their relationship only when downhill as time passed, but she only stayed with him for the sake of Harlem. The horrific torture that took place on February 12 started with him stalking her till her bedroom.
Hill was about to ask him to leave when her phone went off. In a fit of jealousy, he demanded to know who was calling her and asked for her password. He then got angry and began beating her, saying, “I’m going to make you so ugly that no one ever wants you again.”
Prosecutors had hoped he might get 15-20 years in prison, at best. But the judge handed down a heftier sentence.
