A COVENTRY man who carried out a brutal assault in Bedworth which left the victim with severe brain injuries has been jailed for seven years.
Liam McMahon, 20, of Southam Close stood trial at Warwick Crown Court in January where he was found guilty of causing grievous bodily harm and has now been sentenced.
On April 1 last year, McMahon hit the victim – a man in his 20s – around the head with a vodka bottle in Park Road, Bedworth. The victim was left unable to walk or properly talk and now needs around-the-clock care.
Following the attack the victim went home where he fell ill and contacted paramedics who alerted police to his injuries.
Enquiries identified McMahon as a suspect and he was arrested the following day.
Det Con Mike Brennan from Warwickshire Police CID said: “This was a brutal and horrific attack that left the victim with significant and permanent injuries.
“I’m pleased to see McMahon convicted and handed a significant prison sentence.”
