Natalie Lord Wiki – Natalie Lord Biography
Natalie Lord is a former housekeeper at a luxury hotel. She has been locked up and branded a ‘poisonous drunk’ by a judge after she subjected her long-suffering boyfriend to a series of alcohol-fuelled beatings.
She stabbed Leith Gaynor in one attack and battered him over the head with a saucepan in another after she accused him of being unfaithful.
She is 44 years old.
The victim – who is in his 40s – lost consciousness during the assault and was woken up the following day by his mother, who visited him at his flat in Manchester.
He had suffered three-quarters of an inch laceration to his left temple and a two-inch wound to the back of his head. He also suffered multiple chests grazes, teeth marks on his chest, and bruising to his hand.
Mr. Gaynor said: ‘This latest attack has left me feeling very depressed. I have forgiven Natalie too many times now and I do not want her to do it to anyone else.’
She was arrested again in 2019 after getting drunk and beating Mr. Gaynor over the head with a weightlifter’s dumbbell and then leaving him dead in a pool of blood.
Sentencing Judge Hilary Manley told her: ‘This was a sustained attack, and you have no excuse for committing it. You have a history of becoming violent in drink, and you know alcohol is a poison for you.
‘In September 2019, while subject to a suspended sentence order, you chose to drink again with predictable results. You attacked your ex-partner, a man who you had wounded in 2016 with a knife. You are a poisonous drunk, and you chose to be around him again.
‘You have caused very nasty injuries to his head, face, and arms. I am pleased to hear that you have been sober for six months while in custody and that you are determined to sort your life out.
‘But at 44, it’s now or never. Last year, you had an altercation with a neighbor and spat at her, and you were convicted after a trial for that. You have reached the end of the road in terms of chances with the court.’
Earlier, the court heard Lord and Mr. Gaynor and been in a relationship for many years, but it was said to be ‘volatile, unpredictable and difficult.’
At Manchester Crown Court, Lord of Salford admitted causing grievous bodily harm and was jailed for 27 months. She was also banned from contacting Mr. Gaynor for ten years under the terms of a restraining order.
