The victim and a friend had visited Tuft early in the morning after an all-night rave.

At first, the defendant welcomed them both to the home and introduced them to Jackson.

Ms Beaumont had never met him before.

However, violence erupted when Tuft accused Ms Beaumont of “impropriety” with her boyfriend.

She then lashed out with a knife, cutting her victim’s face.

Judge David Wynn Morgan said Ms Beaumont was “distraught” and desperate to leave the flat.

“Knowing that she would need hospital treatment for her injuries, they demanded to know what she intended to say about how they’d been caused,” the judge said.

“They insisted that she not identify Tuft and to say that she had been attacked in the street.”

Jackson took hold of the blade before warning Ms Beaumont: “If you tell the police Karlie done that to you, if Karlie gets locked up or goes to jail, I swear to God I will slice your kids worse than you are.

“You will not have any kids.”

After the horror attack, the sick couple pretended nothing had happened, visiting Tuft’s mum for a Sunday roast.

Judge Morgan told Jackson his threat was “callous, vicious, cruel, and intended to cause the maximum fear and anxiety”.

He called Jackson a “coward” after the defendant said he’d made the warning because he was “scared” of Tuft.

Tuft, 33, and of Lavery Close in Newport, was convicted of wounding with intent and sentenced to six years and six months in prison.
