Boxer Kieran McLuckie jailed for Nicole Coyle attack

An amateur boxer who left his former girlfriend "a couple of blows from death" after beating her unconscious has been jailed for three years.

Kieran McLuckie, 19, attacked Nicole Coyle, also 19, on three occasions between 24 March and 6 October 2012.

The victim's eye sockets were so badly fractured that she needed five metal plates in her face.

McLuckie was jailed at Glasgow Sheriff Court after admitting three assaults, including one to the danger of life.

Jailing McLuckie, Sheriff Alan MacKenzie told him: "It is difficult to find adequate words to express the revulsion one feels at hearing about and seeing the photographs of the consequences of the vile crime set out in the last charge.

"You, an amateur boxer repeatedly punched your ex girlfriend, then aged 18, until a point was reached that she lost consciousness."
