Jess has been in a volatile relationship with Dom for the last 3 years. She is having an affair with a work colleague, Nick. Dom suspects that Jess is having an affair, and one day he drives to her workplace and waits outside. Just after 5.30pm he sees Jess leave work with Nick. He then sees Jess and Nick kissing passionately.

Dom returns home and waits for Jess. When she gets home, he confronts her and accuses her of having an affair. Jess then tells Dom she is leaving him for Nick. Dom snaps and he grabs Jess by the throat. He strangles Jess until she dies.

Nick vows to avenge Jess’s death and he follows Dom when he leaves home late one night. When they reach a secluded location Nick approaches Dom and pulls Dom’s glasses off his face and throws them to the ground and then stamps on them to break them. Dom feels disorientated and is unable to see clearly. Nick then produces a penknife and stabs Dom in the thigh. He then forces Dom to the ground and has sexual intercourse with him.

Battery, qualifying triggers, and criminal damage. I'm annoyed on your behalf that they have mixed several different offences into one question, but at least this isn't an exam hall scenario and it's a bit closer to what you will encounter in practice.
