A British man threw his wife out out of the house, locked her in a shed, and assaulted her because she kept singing “Ding Dong, The Which Is Dead” after his mother died.
Andrew Salmon, 42, of Cornwall, packed up his wife Beverley’s things and refused to let her into their Truro home.
“She never really got on with my mum or any of my relatives and when my mum died she was horrible and offered me no support – she was extremely unsympathetic,” he said.
Beverley initially took refuge in their shed, but Andrew later locked her in.
When she managed to get back into their home, Andrew allegedly threw her onto a bed, choked her, pulled open her shirt and grabbed and twisted her breasts.
Andrew said he suspected his wife was having an affair in addition to being unsympathetic about his mother’s death.
He pleaded guilty to assault and is scheduled to appear in court next month. He has no previous convictions.
