A violent thug has been jailed after he kicked his former partner in the stomach with such force her pancreas split in two.
Stanislavas Filipovic “lost control” and pushed Judita Jurgelaityte to the floor in a jealous rage before kicking her in the abdomen causing her internal organ to rupture.
As a result of the violent attack Miss Jurgelaityte, spent 11 days in hospital and underwent major surgery.
Yesterday Aberdeen Sheriff Court heard the force of the blow pushed her pancreas against her spine, severing it in half and causing her to bleed internally.
And the extent of the injury was so severe surgeons claim it is normally only seen in victims of serious car crashes.
Yesterday, Filipovic was sentenced to 15 months behind bars, having previously admitted assaulting Miss Jurgelaityte to her severe injury on January 4 this year.
The court heard that the attack had taken place at her home in Aberdeen’s Urquhart Road.
Fiscal depute Felicity Merson said on the day of the attack Filipovic had been at his ex-partner’s home to confront her about being unfaithful.
At the time, he believed they were still in a relationship, although the court was told she had moved on.
Filipovic was caught by police the following day after he tried to visit Miss Jurgelaityte at the high dependency unit at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.
When being interviewed he told officers that he had “lost control” and acted out.
The court heard the 36-year-old, of 46 Crossfolds Crescent, Peterhead, had since shown little remorse for his victim.
Reading from a social work report Sheriff Graeme Napier said Filipovic still believed the incident was “all her fault”.
Sentencing the repeat offender, Sheriff Napier said: “This was a very serious, in fact brutal assault, on a woman you claimed you were still in a relationship with.
“The amount of violence involved is evident by the injuries caused.
“This operation required great skill and it was fortunate that the doctors were able to deal with the problem and as a result you are not facing much more serious charges.”
Sheriff Napier ordered that Filipovic be placed under supervision for seven months following his release from prison in order to “protect the public”.
