Murder accused describes how he stabbed his wife

A FORMER pub landlord who is on trial accused of murder today told a court of the moment he stabbed his wife with a ten-inch bayonet.

Paul Green took the stand at Ipswich Crown Court and recalled the attack on Sharon Green at the Old Bell pub in Marlesford last November.

The 59-year-old told jurors he plunged the weapon into his wife’s chest after she claimed she had been having an affair.

Green said: “I never thought she would have been unfaithful to me until she told me.”

He claimed Mrs Green had revealed she had been in a sexual relationship with two men.
