A woman has been jailed after slashing her boyfriend's face from his mouth to his ear after she caught him kissing and cuddling another woman.
Joylene Cunningham used a blade to slash her boyfriend Sean Harman's face - resulting in him needing 18 stitches.
The 30-year-old Cunningham had told York Crown Court she thought the slash was caused from a ring or a glass he was holding - but when her ring was examined by Recorder of York, Judge Paul Batty QC, it was found to be blunt.
Cunningham was jailed for two and a half years.
Judge Batty told her: "The wound had been a deep laceration in places, running virtually from Mr Harman's mouth to his ear and causing a permanent scar."
