A controlling boyfriend subjected his partner to a sustained and brutal attack in which he kneed her in the head all because she uploaded a TikTok video.
Elliott Carlile, 26, controlled various aspects of Lilie Sampson’s life, to such a degree where he even intercepted the victim’s birth control pills and forced her to sit in his car outside his workplace for 11 hours at a time.
Prosecuting the case, Katie Churcher described how Carlile and Ms Sampson had been in an on/off relationship for four and a half years and had a child together.
Carlile controlled all aspects of her life. She was working as a model when they met but he forced her to give up the work due to jealousy and paranoia that she would meet other people.
He also cut her off from her friends and family by limiting contact.

Miss Churcher also described how Carlile would make the her accompany him to work and sit outside in the car for hours on end whilst he was there. He controlled the clothes she wore and what she was able to do.
The two had separated but got back together when Carlile threatened to kill himself, Miss Churcher saying ‘there were a number of incidents leading up to May 2020 when the defendant was violent towards her and slammed doors in her face’.
This culminated in a horrific attack in May 2020 at their home in St Columb, Cornwall, which took place while Ms Sampson was holding their son.
The previous day Carlile had become angry over a TikTok video and upon return, Carlile began two hours of abuse.
Miss Churcher told the court how Carlile put his hands around the victim’s neck and shook her. He also elbowed her to the collar bone, dragged her by the hair and hit her all over the body.
Carlile then took a break when he drove off and hinted at inflicting harm to himself and the baby before he returned and continued the assault as the victim held the child.
He again dragged her by the hair before kneeing her to the face as he continued to make threats.

The victim was saved when her mother arrived and attended hospital two days later where she claimed she sustained the injuries after being hit by a horse.
When he was contacted by the police, Carlile claimed she had ‘come at him’ and ‘things got a bit out of hand’.
In a victim impact statement read to the court she spoke of how when Carlile decided he wanted a child, he’d hide her birth control pills.
She spoke of suffering constant flashbacks and has been diagnosed with PTSD symptoms.
Carlile stopped her from going to college as he was worried about other men being around her and only let her work in a salon because he knew the majority of the clients would be female.
She said she was now studying for qualifications to go to college and had started modelling again – things Carlile had stopped her doing because she would meet other men.
Speaking on behalf of Carlile, Ryan Murray said that Carlile accepts his insecurities led to a toxic relationship and that at the time he was placed on furlough and worried for his job.
He said these insecurities had led to a ‘toxic relationship which spiralled down at a rate of knots’.
He added that Carlile is ‘extremely sorry for everything’, has a stable job and home life and wishes to join the armed forces.
Carlile of Porth, near, Newquay appeared at Truro Crown Court for sentence on Thursday having pleaded guilty to assault occasioning actual bodily harm.
Sentencing Carlile, Judge Simon Carr said: ‘I’m dealing with the matter nearly two years later but that is in part due to your initial not guilty plea.
‘You were in a relationship with the complainant that was controlling and abusive. You were paranoid about her seeing other people.
‘There were a number of separations and on the day of the offence an argument started about her posting on social media – something she and everybody else are perfectly entitled to do every day.
‘Your paranoia was such you thought you had the right to object.
‘The argument was initially verbal before it came physical.
‘Over a significant period of time you struck her to the head and body and placed your hands around her throat.’
Judge Carr then spoke of how Carlile left and then returned landing multiple blows to the body and face before kneeing his partner to the face.
Judge Carr jailed Carlile for 15 months and a restraining order was put in place.
