According to the Townsville Bulletin, the incident occurred after Reginald Edward Winston Bligh snuck in through the window of his ex girlfriend Wendy Sore’s home in West End, at 5.30am on November 26 last year, and didn’t like what he found, the Daily Telegraph reported.
Bligh began swinging at Hosea Murphy, who lay asleep next to Sore, and bit off the tip of his nose in the jealous outburst.
The 23-year-old then fled the house, despite his victim’s effort to calm him down.
Bligh, a father-of-two, was jailed for three years, after pleading guilty to burglary and assault that resulted in bodily harm in Townsville District Court. (ANI)
