Brit muscleman accused of battering a woman in Turkey has been allowed to return to the UK

A HOLIDAY Brit accused of beating a woman to a pulp when she refused sex has been freed and allowed to fly home.

Emma Higginson, 35, suffered fractures to her skull, both eye sockets and nose in the vicious attack in Marmaris, Turkey, last September.

A court freed suspect Declan Marshall after his lawyer argued he had spent five months in jail and should be allowed home while more evidence is sought.

Muscle-man Marshall, 27, was understood to be back in Stoke last night amid concerns he will not return to face trial.

Emma, from Kent, said: “I still have the physical and mental scars from the attack and I’m having regular hospital and dental appointments plus counselling.

“He nearly killed me and I’m in constant pain.
