A PRISONER who berated his ex-partner with a tirade of abuse over the phone could be on for extra jail time.

Kevin Russell called his ex-girlfriend and branded her a “fat cow and a slapper” during the vile exchange on October 9 last year.

Kilmarnock Sheriff Court heard Russell, 29, called the woman while she was at a friends house and subjected her to disgusting abuse.

Russell, of Clark Drive, appeared in the dock from custody where he is serving a nine-month sentence for another crime.

Fiscal Depute Vicky McMillan said: “The accused and complainer were previously in a relationship for seven years and that ended in October 2017. They have one child together.

“At around 1pm the complainer was at her friends house when she received a telephone call from the accused on answering he shouted at the complainer referring to her as a ‘fat cow and a slapper’

“And he said she ‘could not keep him away from the wean’ and then referred to her as ‘f*****g grass’.

“Police were contacted and the accused was not arrested at that time.”

Defending Russell, Jim Irvine told Sheriff Elizabeth MacFarlane his client was a father-of-three and looked after his unwell mother and was keen to get his freedom back.

He said: “He is keen to obtain liberation at the earliest date. He is 29, single and has three children, one of whom is with the complainer. He has no ongoing contact with the complainer and he does not have any contact with the children. His own mother does not keep well. She has MS.”

Sheriff MacFarlane deferred for reports until November 19.
