A man poured hot oil over his ex-girlfriend’s head because she allegedly cheated on him, he told the High Court in Belfast today.
Ioan Felician Gyorfi claimed he was provoked into emptying the contents of a deep fat fryer around the victim after she had cooked him egg and chips.
A judge shown pictures of the burns inflicted said the woman could have been blinded in the attack at a house in Portadown, Co Armagh on July 7th.
Mr Gyorfi, a 35-year-old Romanian national, faces a charge of causing grievous bodily harm with intent.
Bail was refused amid fears he could flee or re-offend.
