A DEAF mum who killed her boyfriend after he raped her has been jailed for two years.

Julie Hartley, 33, stabbed abusive Paul Mitchell, 36.

She was originally charged with murder but pleaded guilty to culpable homicide.

At the High Court in Edinburgh yesterday, Lady Cosgrove took into account the "exceptional circumstances".

Hartley, of Linkview House, Leith, Edinburgh, has been on remand since April and should be free by March.
