A 47-year-old woman from Clacton has been found guilty of stabbing a man in his own home.

Kelly Gentry, of no fixed address, went into the victim’s home in Wellesley Road, Clacton, on Friday, June 23, where she became aggressive in the evening and demanded money before threatening the man with a knife.

She stabbed the man, aged in his 60s, in the stomach, shoulder and chest before slashing him across the throat.

The man passed out before coming to around 5.30am when he alerted a neighbour who called 999.

Gentry was arrested in Harlow on July 1, and subsequently charged with attempted murder, which she denied.
