A Suffolk woman who stabbed her partner seven times with a knife during a row in the home they shared in Lowestoft has walked free from court.
Annette Carr and her partner Robert Sturley had been drinking at the address they shared in Lowestoft in July last year and an argument started, Ipswich Crown Court heard.
Carr picked up a small kitchen knife and caused seven puncture wounds to the front and back of Mr Sturley’s body but then came to her senses and called an ambulance, said Joe Bird, prosecuting.
“The injuries were much less severe than they might have been,” he said.
Carr, 49, of Marham Road, Lowestoft, admitted assaulting Mr Sturley causing him actual bodily harm and was given a 12 month prison sentence suspended for two years and ordered to do a 25 day rehabilitation requirement.
