The “Jungle Fever” drama started when Jane’s parents learned of her 18-month relationship with Zimbabwe-born, Alfonce Ncube, 18. The father violently threw her out of the house by grabbing her hair and striking her in the process, according to prosecutors. Jane moved in with her grandparents in St Thomas, Swansea, but eventually moved back into her parent’s home.
One day, her father asked her if she was still seeing Ncube. When Jane admitted that she was, he hit her. The Daily Mail has more on this story:
‘Miss Champion said she felt huge pain to her left eye but her father then grabbed her by the throat and continued hitting her.’
Mr Champion, 47, then began hitting his daughter – causing swelling on her face and lumps on her head – yelling abuse at the teenager saying: ‘You deserve it. It is all your fault.’
