“Monster husband” gets 40 years

Freddie Gordon

THE tables were turned on “monster” husband Freddie Gordon – who kept his wife locked up and beat, burnt and raped her at will – when he was sentenced to 40 years in prison yesterday.

He will have to serve at least 25 years before he is eligible for parole.

State Advocate Andre Kirchner told the court Gordon had laughed throughout proceedings and had shown no remorse.

Gordon’s wife, Avril, 54, who had to undergo numerous reconstructive surgeries on her mutilated face and body, was overcome with emotion after the final gavel was sounded in the Port Elizabeth Regional Court.

She said she looked forward to moving on with her life. – Kathryn Kimberley

    This evil monster should hang by his neck until dead. Fortunately while in prison he will get a taste of evil, he will probably be raped and sodomised by other prisoners. It will be tit for tat. Freddie Gordon enjoy your stay in prison.

    i am glad he got 25yrs, however this is not enough for what he did. the sad thing is he will probabily only serve a portion of this time. people like him should serve the complete sentence. he is resopnsible for completely altering a person life and their perception of themselves, this experience tends to linger in the survivors life for a long time. dallas
