A KELTY man has appeared in court after assaulting his wife twice within a week.

In the dock at Dunfermline Sheriff Court was Andrew Keatings, 30, of Seafar Drive.

He admitted that on December 30, at Keltyhill Avenue, Kelty, he assaulted his partner by repeatedly seizing her and causing her to fall to the ground to her injury.

He also admitted that on January 6, at the same address in Keltyhill Avenue, he again assaulted his partner by seizing her and pushing her to the ground to her injury.

Defence solicitor Ian Beatson said the couple had been married for two years and in a relationship for 12 years.

Sheriff Linda Smith called for reports and Keatings will be sentenced on February 7.
