A stalker who terrorised his ex-girlfriend for nine months was yesterday jailed for 15 months.

Southampton Crown Court heard that Paul Cox, 34, had "dominated" Sandra Holland, 36, with a series of gruesome acts and threats after they split up in January last year. On one occasion Cox, a heating engineer, posted raw liver through her letterbox and left a severed chicken's head on a bible under a dustbin at her mother's house.

He repeatedly telephoned her at her home in New Milton, Hampshire, alternating silent calls with death threats. On one occasion Cox rang Miss Holland 22 times during a two-hour period.

His bombardment of calls forced the single mother to change her number three times.
