Dead as a doughnut

Don’t worry, it’s just kink, just BDSM, just “rough sex.” Don’t kink-shame the nice man.

A multi-millionaire who left his injured and bleeding partner to die after “rough sex” has been jailed for three years and eight months.

Seeing as how she died, “rough sex” seems just a tad euphemistic.

Natalie Connolly had suffered more than 40 separate injuries, the court heard.

Broadhurst, 40, told a 999 operator he found his partner “dead as a doughnut” at their home in Kinver, Staffordshire, in December 2016.

At least he kept his sense of humor.

Ms Connolly was pronounced dead on 18 December 2016 after Broadhurst called paramedics to their rented home. She died from acute alcohol intoxication and blunt force injuries.

In mitigation, defence Stephen Vullo QC, said Broadhurst, of Wolverley, knew his partner was bleeding but did not think she would come to any harm.

Sure; blunt force trauma never harmed anyone.
