He told Boyne: ‘I take the view you have some form of alcohol problem.
‘Alcohol has been a feature of your life since, sadly, your husband died.
‘Jealousy arose, and you, in my view, formed a view that Miss Szwed had done something to you.
‘If you had not been in drink, you would not have done it, but you put your arm round her throat and smashed her head on the windowsill.
‘You then bashed her head on the basin.
‘There is no doubt in my mind you intended to hurt her – and you did.

Ms Szwed suffered a very large cut to the top of her head after Boyne used the wall a as a weapon
‘She suffered a very large cut indeed to the top of her head. You used the wall as a weapon.
‘She came out from the toilet and said what had happened to her, but you denied any assault, which I find extraordinary, given the job you did.
‘You didn’t tell the truth in your defence case statement, and only told the truth today.
‘But it was an isolated incident, you were in a good job, and have lost your job and lost your home. A great deal has fallen away from your life.’
The court heard Ms Szwed had also lost her job as a result of time she had to take off sick following the attack.
Prosecutor Graeme Simpson said both women had been in a pub when Ms Szwed spoke to a man at the bar who was involved with Boyne.

He said: ‘When Ms Szwed went into the toilets, Boyne followed her and began screaming at her: ‘I’m going to f***ing kill you.’
‘She grabbed Ms Szwed by the throat and lifted her up onto a ledge before smashing the back of her head against a tiled windowsill.
‘When Boyne let go, Ms Swed put her hands up to try to calm things down, but Boyne continued to shout abuse and threats at her before grabbing her by the air.
‘Boyne pulled her victim’s head backwards and smashed it against the edge of the sink before letting go and walking out.
‘As a result of the attack, Ms Szwed had a 4cm cut to the back of her head which required stitches.’
When she was arrested, Boyne lied about what had happened and at first denied the assault charge before later changing her plea to guilty.
Sophie Murray, defending, said Boyne had lost her job as a pastoral carer at a school and had also lost her home.
