Connie Culp, who got first US face transplant, dead at 57

Culp was left severely disfigured in 2004 when her husband, Thomas, blasted her with a shotgun inside their Hopedale, Ohio, apartment.

The blast shattered her nose, cheeks, the roof of her mouth and an eye. Hundreds of fragments of shotgun pellet and bone splinters were embedded in her face.

Only her upper eyelids, forehead, lower lip and chin were left.

Her husband then turned the weapon on himself, and also survived, though with significantly less serious injuries. He was later convicted of aggravated attempted murder and sentenced to seven years in prison.


Lousy shot.

Only seven years? That's the sort of limp-wristed rubbish we expect from British judges.
