A man accused of stamping on his girlfriend’s head, fracturing her eye socket, has made his first appearance at court.

Steven Maddox is then alleged to have repeatedly kicked her in the head and stomach before dragging her to the fridge so she could get him some beer.

Maddox, 52, of Southfleet Place, Fleetwood, is charged with wounding his partner with intent to cause her grievous bodily harm on December 18.

He is also accused of assaulting her causing her actual bodily harm and damaging car windscreen wipers and a wardrobe.

Pam Smith, prosecuting, asked for the case to be heard at crown court.

Defence lawyer, Alan Cobain, said his client would not enter pleas to the offences at that stage.

Maddox was refused bail and remanded in custody to appear at Preston Crown Court on January 20 by Blackpool magistrates.
