Woman beaten by ex for breaking up

A 36-year-old woman from Carseldine, Queensland, Australia,  had to fight for her life after she was brutally beaten with a baseball bat by Glenn Matthew Cable. When she told Cable she was breaking up with him for lies he told her, he stormed her house and beat her in front of her children.

She was in critical condition for several weeks. Even with much reconstructive surgery, she will be permanently scarred physically and emotionally.
