A man in UK forced his ex-partner to strip and cut chunks of her hair before shooting her at point-blank range.

According to a Daily Mail report, 50-year-old David Oakes arrived at Christine Chambers’ house at midnight while she was wtaching TV with their daughters aged 10 and 2. He had an axe, a bottle of petrol, scissors and a shotgun.

He allegedly yelled, ‘If I can’t have you, then nobody can’, the court heard.

The couple’s 10-year-old daughter tried calling for help but he smashed the phone down. She recollected him forcing her mother to kiss him and say she loves him.

Then he allegedly made her take off her top and cut her hair before shooting her and their two-year-old child.

He later shot himself but survived.

The couple met in 2005 and have four children. They split last April.

They were scheduled to appear in court the following morning to settle the custody rights of the child.
