An ex-Royal Navy helicopter pilot jailed twice for stalking a woman he met on a dating site is on trial accused of stalking her again.

Kim Allison, 63, met company director Nancy Galloway, 63, from Torquay, in May 2016 after his own wife had recently died, a court heard.

Allison contacted Ms Galloway shortly after being released from prison, Exeter Crown Court was told, but she decided to break off the relationship five months later.

The court heard the couple had a shared interest in going on cruises and listening to opera.

But jurors were told that the abuse began after they split up – with hundreds of sexually aggressive emails allegedly sent to Ms Galloway.

At the height of his alleged stalking, Ms Galloway was said to have been so scared that she fled her home in Torquay and deleted all her social media accounts to stop him contacting her.

Allison, of Yeovil in Somerset, denies stalking and breaching a restraining order, the BBC reported.

Allison was handed a restraining order in January 2017, prosecutor Peter Coombe told the court, but continued stalking Ms Galloway and was imprisoned in March 2017.

Mr Coombe said that four days after leaving prison Allison sent Ms Galloway more abusive emails and created an account in her name on a sadomasochistic dating site.

Allison was jailed for harassment and breaching a restraining order in June 2017.

The online stalking resumed when Allison was released on licence in January 2018, Mr Coombe said.

The jury was told that he posted a picture of Ms Galloway on a porn website and used his knowledge of the internet to conceal his actions.

The court heard that it stopped again when he was recalled to finish his sentence in February and started again after Allison was released in August.

Mr Coombe said the defendant set up a page on a porn site and posted a doctored image of Ms Galloway’s face with a penis superimposed onto it.

“It is quite plain he was still completely obsessed with her and was still stalking her in all the ways he has done in the past,” said Mr Coombe.

The trial continues.
