A woman who was left wheelchair bound after she was beaten within an inch of her life as a teenager by her violent ex-boyfriend has revealed the gruesome details and pictures of her assault.

Anj Barker was only 16-years-old when her then-boyfriend attacked her at her high school in Benalla, a remote town in Victoria back in 2002.

After they had arranged to meet in the afternoon and Ms Barker told her boyfriend that she wasn't taking him back, the abusive 20-year-old flew into one of his all too common rages. 

He smashed Ms Barker's head against a steel bench, jumped on her face and choked her so badly he ripped her vocal chords.
