A woman was arrested on a charge of attempted murder after stabbing her husband in the back because he decided to dump her, police in the United Kingdom said.
Now, 30-year-old Crystal Smith of Gosport, has been sentenced to serve 9 years in prison after stabbing 30-year-old Simon Smith.
According to the police investigation, Simon and Crystal Smith were married for six years and have a 4-year-old daughter.
Crystal abused Simon throughout the relationship, and he accepted her because he thought her behavior was normal.
The stabbing incident occurred earlier this year, after a Simon attended a navy party at the Royal Beach Hotel. In front of his friends and colleagues, Crystal accused Simon of having an affair.
When they got home, Cristal launched a knife at Simon. Simon left the house, but returned to collect his belongings. As Simon took a suitcase from the bedroom, Crystal crawled up the stairs with a knife and stabbed him in the back three times.
