Peter Yeung Wiki – Peter Yeung Bio
Peter Yeung, the boyfriend of an NHS nurse Alexandra Reid, who killed herself over fears no one would believe he regularly beat her up has been jailed for six months for assault.
Alexandra Reid was financially, emotionally and physically abused by her boyfriend Peter Yeung.
He is 35 years old.
Alexandra Reid Death
Alexandra, known as Alex, was found dead at her home in Anfield in February last year after taking her own life due to fears no one would believe her domestic abuse claims.
Yeung had pleaded not guilty to assaulting Alex but was today given a six-month prison sentence at Liverpool Magistrates’ Court, of which he was told he will serve half.
Peter Yeung Jailed
Yeung was jailed for six months after telling Alexandra Reid police would not believe another partner was abusing her. She died a week after cops took eight hours to arrive.
He was branded “calculating and thoroughly dishonest” by a judge for telling Alexandra Reid that police would not believe another partner was abusing her.
The former takeaway worker throttled, kicked and burst the 30-year-old community nurse’s lip before calling police to say she would “make up” the abuse.
Dressed in a grey tracksuit, Yeung looked to the floor as emotional statements from Alex’s family were read aloud in court earlier today.
District Judge Andrew Shaw told Yeung: ‘Alex had confided in you that she had suffered domestic abuse before and you used this against her and you told her police would not believe it [abuse] was happening again.
‘She was a vulnerable victim after being previously attacked and she was manipulated into believing that police would not believe her.’
During his trial, in December, the former takeaway worker was found guilty of two charges of assault and admitted one of criminal damage – with District Judge Shaw stating his version of events was not plausible.
