A dad died after being kicked and stamped upon before being attacked with a pair of pliers at a house party, a court heard.
Kenny Adams suffered severe stomach injuries, a fractured skull and eight broken ribs in the alleged attack by Craig Kelly at the house in Belle Isle, Leeds.
Kelly is also accused of using the pliers to inflict wounds on his partner, Tracy Myers, during the incident on March 22 this year.
It is also alleged Kelly raped another woman during the same evening at the property on The Clearings, Belle Isle.
Kelly is on trial at Leeds Crown Court where he denies murder, rape and assault occasioning actual bodily harm.
The court heard the offences are alleged to have taken place during a party at the home where Kelly, Miss Myers and four of their children lived.
Describing events leading up to the alleged incidents, prosecutor Neil Davey, QC, said: “A party quickly got going among the adults.”
He added: “It seems that a good deal of alcohol was consumed, by some a very great deal of alcohol.”
The jury heard a fight broke out later in the evening between Mr Adams and Kelly.
Mr Davey said both men punched each other in the face and Kelly began to get the “upper hand”.
He said: “Kenny Adams fell to the kitchen floor where he was so close to unconsciousness that he no longer presented any threat to the defendant.
“Craig Kelly was not satisfied with this. Whilst Kenny Adams was lying on the floor and unable to defend himself, the defendant repeatedly punched him to the head; repeatedly kicked him both to the head and to the body, and repeatedly stamped upon him.
“The kicks and stamps to the torso caused such severe abdominal injuries which bled so badly that Kenny Adams later died from them.”
The court heard Kelly took a pair of pliers from a toolbox in a cupboard and used them to assault his partner, nipping and cutting her several times.
He is then alleged to have used the pliers on Mr Adams and left injuries on his body.
After the pliers were recovered they were found to contain Mr Adams’s DNA within the jaws of the tool.
Police and paramedics were called but Mr Adams was declared dead at 10.55pm that evening. After being arrested, Kelly claimed he punched Mr Adams in self defence. He denied kicking or stamping on him or using a weapon.
