A trial has been set for a man accused of breaking his partner’s arm with a wrench and several other violent domestic incidents.
The 42-year-old man faces charges from four different dates and was denied bail in May 2021. The Sun is not naming the man to avoid identifying the victim.
During his bail hearing, Crown attorney Melania Cannon said the victim was found with cuts on her face and bruises on her neck after an April 2020 incident.
On May 22, the victim called police to say the man was allegedly at her house, breaching court orders.
When officers arrived, she told them the man allegedly hit her left arm with a wrench and broke it on May 16.
In another incident, the man allegedly smashed a glass against her head after she made him a meal he didn’t like.
The man is also accused in other incidents where he allegedly broke court orders and beat the victim.
Cannon said the beatings amounted to the man using his partner like "a punching bag."
The man is now scheduled to go to trial in late August, defence lawyer Andrew Synyshyn told a Brandon provincial court on Tuesday.
None of the charges have so far been tested in court and the man is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
