    Man fired shotgun at ceiling after catching ex in 'sexual encounter' with another man

    A MAN who fired a shotgun into the ceiling of his former girlfriend's home after discovering her in a "sexual encounter" with another man has been jailed for four years.

    A MAN who fired a shotgun into the ceiling of his former girlfriend's home after discovering her in a "sexual encounter" with another man has been jailed for four years.
    Jamie Belton, 33, went home and armed himself with the licensed weapon after walking in on his former long-term partner, Miriam Core, and his friend Simon Gray.
    Belton, who had been in a ten-year relationship with Miss Core, admitted firing two shots into the kitchen ceiling and at the hall stairs after returning to the property in Navenby.
    Lincoln Crown Court heard Mr Gray suffered a cut to his face and a hole in his jacket, despite Belton not aiming the shotgun at the couple.

    Belton made no comment when questioned by police, but issued a prepared statement in which he admitted going back with the shotgun after finding Miss Core and Mr Gray having sex on the sofa.
    Lloyd Edwards, mitigating, told the court Belton had called at Miss Core's home for a chat and was expecting to rekindle their relationship after what he believed had been a two-week trial separation.
    Belton, of Hall Farm Cottages, Coleby, admitted possessing a firearm with intent to cause fear of violence, causing actual bodily harm to Mr Gray and criminal damage on December 3, last year.
    Judge Michael Heath told Belton he could not overlook the seriousness of the case.
