JEALOUS Martin Plaice assaulted his wife with wood from a child's chair he had smashed, after accusing her of speaking to men on the internet.
And on Tuesday Plaice was given a 12 week suspended jail sentence for the assault, and told he must take part in a domestic abuse programme and undergo alcohol treatment.
Plaice threw a piece of wood from the ruined furniture at his wife Deboarah.
The wood hit Mrs Plaice's arm, and he pinned her down on a chair and pushed her back as she tried to get away.
"She was fearful for her life because he was so angry," Fenland magistrates heard from prosecutor Scheherazade Haque.
"Plaice punched himself in the face and said he was going to tell police that his wife had hit him."

Plaice, 33, of Thurlands Drove, Upwell, had previously admitted assault. The incident happened after Plaice returned home from work in a bad mood, and he drank 10 cans of lager, said Miss Haque.
He pulled cables out of the computer, and accused her of speaking to men on a chat website.
Plaice smashed a child's red chair, and a piece of wood he threw hit his wife's arm. She suffered a bruised arm.
Mitigating, Roger Glazebrook said Plaice had "exploded" after thinking about someone winding him up at work. He has since been referred to Drinksense.
