A KILWINNING man poured a bottle of wine over his ex-girlfriend’s head and bit her, a court has heard.

Stephen Cottle, of Fergushill Road, admitted to assaulting his former partner at a property in Carron Place, Castlepark on February 16 this year.

Kilmarnock Sheriff Court heard the 40-yearold entered her home uninvited, refused to leave, and kicked the back door in whilst shouting and swearing.

Cottle, who was on bail, was sentenced to a Community Payback Order with two years supervision and 100 hours unpaid work.
