Helen recalls Luke coming home from a four-day New Year’s drinking session with rage in 2014.

She told the Star on Sunday Luke thought she had a man at home before launching his attack that left her fighting for her life.

Helen said: “He threw me against the coffee table but I thought he was just mucking around.

“Then after a minute or two I realised just how serious this all was.

“I remember opening my eyes and seeing bloodied footprints on the floor from where he kept stamping on my head.”

Dowdle was sentenced to eight years in prison, but Helen has now been told he could be released three years early.

He was initially arrested for attempted murder, but he agreed to plead guilty to GBH with intent.

Now Dowdle, who was jailed at Bournemouth Crown Court, is eligible for parole in three months, after just five years in jail.

Helen has questioned why he’s “serving less than half of his sentence”, because those “20 minutes changed my life forever”.

When she was taken to hospital medics said she had so many injuries, they could not count how many she was left with.

But her head injury was so bad, her skull was visible to the naked eye.

Fearing for when he may be released, Helen said she hasn’t left her house in five years.


In order to help others she has launched a petition, calling for a minimum sentence to be imposed for those who attack their partners at home.

Dowdle had a history of beating women, and had previously been jailed for a year for attacking his ex.
