Mom brutally beaten by husband 3 days after giving birth to their baby

A young mother is encouraging others to report domestic violence wherever it exists, having been beaten by her husband whilst using her body to shield her three-day-old baby.

Kerry Armstrong was attacked by her husband, Gary Peoples, who then proceeded to assault her 13-year-old daughter.

The girl, from a previous marriage, entered the room to see her mom being attacked. The man then pushed her up against the wall, before later being arrested for his actions.

The judge in the case heard how in the initial aftermath of the assault, he refused to let his wife leave the house. She was able to escape, however, and drove to her mother’s house. Her brother then informed the police.

Kerry was left with two black eyes, facial swelling, and bruising to other parts of her body, having used her body as a shield to protect her three-day-old baby.

Gary Peoples, 40, meanwhile, admitted to the assault and was jailed for 20 months. Armstrong is now doing her best to spread her story in the hope that it will encourage other victims of domestic abuse to step forward.

“It has been quite a long time since this happened and it has been hard to get to this point.”

“At times I just wanted to give up but I was determined to go through with it on behalf of other women who have suffered and who are still suffering from the effects of domestic violence.”

No woman – or man– should live in fear of someone who is supposed to care for and love them.
