A husband who became angry that his wife didn’t want to contribute a share of the rent, decided to slash her breasts with a large knife, police in the United Kingdom said.

Now, 30-year-old Dorinel Cojanu of Watford, has been sentenced to serve 11 years in jail after being convicted of attempted murder.

According to the police investigation, Cojanu attacked his wife Daniela, a 28, in the kitchen of their home in Lingmoor Drive, after arguing about money.

Cojanu used a brown kitchen knife with an 8-inch blade, to slash his wife’s breasts. He also caused injuries to her ribs, lung and liver.

After being attacked, she ran out of the house and went to a neighbor to ask for help. She was rushed to the St. Mary’s Hospital in Paddington.

Cojanu pleaded not guilty to attempted murder, but was convicted by a jury. The court heard that the couple struggled financially and the husband was an alcoholic.

At the time of the stabbing, the husband was three times over the legal driving limit. He also asked her for her contribution to the rent.

When she told him that she had no money, he became angry and attacked her. During questioning, Cojanu told the police that his wife had caused the injuries herself and that she had tried to stab him.

In addition to the prison sentenced, Cojanu was banned from ever contacting his wife.
