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.

Green, who was emotional on the stand, said he left soon after before driving his car into a tree on the A12 with the intention of killing himself.
“I thought I had killed my wife, my kids’ mum. I thought I would kill myself,” he said.
Green, of Main Road, Marlesford, denies murdering 53-year-old Mrs Green between November 19 and 20 last year. The trial continues.
