A Jobless wife, identified as Sonia Simpson, has been jailed for stabbing her husband because he wasted a lot of time doing the Christmas shopping. The 52-year wife, stabbed him four times with the kitchen knife at their home in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk.
Husband Stuart Simpson, 45 narrated this on Sunday, December 23 in order to make men feel free to speak up about domestic abuse on them. However, Stuart had to have life-saving surgery and missed 2017 Christmas celebration totally.
Speaking on how the incident happened; I went into town while Sonia was at home having some drinks with Stacey (a friend). “But it took me longer than anticipated because of the push of last-minute Christmas shopping. “When I arrived home 5 hours later, Sonia was raging”. “She asked Stacey if she thought I was an idiot and, when Stacey disagreed, Sonia punched her in the face. To protect Stacey from Sonia, I grabbed her and pushed her into the room. But, as I shut the door, Sonia stabbed me hard at the back with a kitchen knife that the handle had snapped off.”
According to Stuart; “She even accused me of sleeping with another lady when I was at my mother’s funeral”. “I was working long hours as a cook and when I got home, Sonia would accuse me of sleeping with my boss”. “I was therefore wrapped up in the relationship that I could not see how dominant it had been.
Moreover, Sonia has since been imprisoned for fourteen years. She was found guilty of inflicting grievous bodily harm with intent and perverting the course of justice.
“I think women get away with domestic violence more than men. “Unfortunately, there is a stigma against men talking about their emotions so until we tend to crack this, i think men can invariably struggle with this.”He concluded.
