A MAN faces prison after trying to kill his partner with a rock while she slept in Almeria.
According to reports the couple had been arguing about rumours about her while he was in prison.
Once the victim had gone to sleep, the man, “angered by the disputes” grabbed a rock and “began to hit her head” with it.
Fortunately the woman woke up and managed to escape despite him throwing “continual blows” and threatening to kill her.
Reports say the man then went out onto the street covered in blood shouting “those who lie to me die.”
The victim managed to make it to a hospital, where she stayed for a day to be treated for her injuries.
The man faces nine years in prison as well as a €2,655 fine and a 15 year restraining order for attempted murder.
