Alan O'Donnell jailed for battering wife with rolling pin

A man who battered his wife with a rolling pin in a "brutal and prolonged" attack has been jailed for three years.

Alan O'Donnell attacked Lorraine Lorimer during an incident at her home in Yoker, Glasgow, in February 2014.

The 46-year-old, from the city's Drumchapel area, was previously convicted of assault, having initially faced a charge of attempted murder.

Jailing him, judge Lady Rae told O'Donnell: "No remorse has been shown for what happened."

She added: "It has been suggested that this is a lesson learned, but I am not sure how that can be when you accept no guilt."

At the High Court in Glasgow the judge also noted that O'Donnell had a previous conviction for a domestic breach of the peace.
