(DAILY MAIL) — A ‘sinister’ young mother stabbed and battered her boyfriend because he failed to call her every two hours on a night out, leaving him so badly injured paramedics believed he was dead, a court heard yesterday.

Rhiann Burnie, 21, punched bricklayer Shane McMullen, 23, then knifed him in the shoulder before lighting up a cigarette and mopping up blood as he lay on the floor clinging to life, the jury at Burnley Crown Court was told.

The prosecution claim she flew into a rage about him going to an engagement party and leaving her at home with her two-year-old daughter.

Despite the wound severing a major artery and causing significant blood loss, Mr McMullen survived but has suffered memory loss and has nightmares of being stabbed again.

A jury was told he had been attacked simply because he forgot to ring her ‘every couple of hours’ as she demanded.

Burnley Crown Court was told the couple had been in a relationship for a year and initially was ‘happy and healthy’ yet a ‘darker more sinister side’ of Burnie’s character emerged, said Miss Rachel Woods, prosecuting.

Burnie had on two previous occasions turned on him with a knife with Mr McMullen having to wrestle them off her, it is alleged.

She had also smashed doors and furniture during heated arguments and had revealed she had been advised to attend anger management courses.

Miss Woods added: ‘She revealed a different side of her character, a volatile side, an aggressive side, an unpredictable side where she would lose her temper and damage the property and furniture, doors, in a fit of rage.

‘No sooner would she blow up she would calm down. In flashes of temper the knife would come out and then matters would calm down – Mr McMullen had little realisation what lay ahead.’
