An abusive “girlfriend from hell” who was jailed for leaving her boyfriend just days before he died has been released from prison.
Jordan Worth, 26, was put behind bars five years ago for abusing her former partner Alex Skeel.
Worth attacked him with knives and a hammer and scalded him with boiling water. She also deprived him of contact with friends and family.
The Parole Broad has now decided to release Worth from prison as it believes she no longer poses a danger to the public.
The parole board announced that Worth was released at the automatic release date of her sentence in January 2022. Her license was revoked and she was recalled to custody on September 30, 2022 due to concerns about her conduct.
After she was recalled, it was revealed that Worth had tried to control a partner, had difficulty dealing with emotions, and was having trouble with a relationship.
Her parole hearing heard she had completed a series of courses in the prison system to improve her behavior and counteract “a tendency to use violence.”
Although some witnesses suggested considering a release plan, others spoke against it.
However, the parole board decided to release her from custody if certain measures were taken.
A BBC documentary revealed horrific details about Worth’s past abuse – including making Alex sleep on the floor for nine months. But Worth was the first girlfriend Alex ever had.
He told The Sun in 2018: “I think I thought that was how relationships were, but now I know that wasn’t normal.”
Even when concerned neighbors called the police, Alex, then 22, acted as if he had inflicted the injuries himself.
He was taken to hospital with burns to his arms and legs, which he tried to treat with cling film.
Paramedics found further burns and stab wounds, but Alex nevertheless returned to the house he shared with Worth in Stewartby, Beds.
Days later, a police officer finally persuaded him to tell the terrible truth.
Earlier this year, The Sun revealed Worth had started a new relationship with 28-year-old bricklayer Adam Steff, with the pair exchanging gushing messages online.
After a hearing on July 4th this year, the parole board has now decided to release Worth.
A spokesman said: “After considering the circumstances of her offending and the length of her license, the progress made while in custody and the evidence presented at the hearing, the panel concluded that detention was no longer necessary to protect the public.”

Help for victims of domestic violence against men
If a victim is in immediate danger they should call 999 and inform the authorities of the abuse.
Otherwise, men can contact the police, their GP, a local hospital or a specialist hotline, such as: ManKind Initiative to get help getting out of the relationship.
Keeping documents and logs in a diary detailing the abuse in a safe place could later help inform others about the abuse.
