A husband cut up his wife’s bikinis and destroyed her home after she left him for a new man, prosecutors in the United Kingdom said.
59-year-old Philip Gamble ripped his wife’s tops and cut the crotch area of her bikinis before carefully putting the clothes back in her drawer, the Gloucester Crown Court heard.
The couple met when Gamble was 15 years old and his wife was just 11 years old.
The father of three children decided to take revenge against his wife of 38 years, after she left him for another man and moved out of the home they shared.
Gamble poured bleach on the window curtains, damaged a mattress and turned off the refrigerator. Gamble pleaded guilty to charges of robbery with intent to cause criminal damage and causing criminal damage.
He caused 5000 pounds ($7,766) in damages by destroying her clothes and 700 ($1,087) pounds in damages by smashing a TV. Gamble was sentenced to three months in jail, which was suspended for one year.
He was also ordered to pay court costs and a victim surcharge of 180 pounds ($279). Gamble and his wife have three children together.
