Pregnant rape victim 'thought she would die'

A MAN has been jailed for a violent rape on a woman carrying his child.

Lee Kelsall (29), dragged the 19-year-old woman upstairs to a bedroom and raped her in August this year.

It was the second time he raped her that evening after earlier throttling her and she feared she was going to be killed.

Sheffield Crown Court heard that the woman was three months pregnant at the time.

Kelsall, of Bolton-on-Dearne, admitted rape charges and was jailed for four years.
