A bride was arrested on a charge of murder after allegedly stabbing her husband because he was fired from his job as an attorney, police in the United Kingdom said.
Lancashire police said that they have arrested 42-year-old Sharon Edwards, after being accused of plunging a knife into the chest of 51-year-old David Edwards.
The Manchester Crown Court heard that David Edwards was the victim of continuous domestic abuse. He kept the abuse secret, and would often appear in court looking disheveled and covered in bruises.
The day the newlywed couple returned from their honeymoon, Sharon Edwards learned that her husband was fired from his job at a law firm.
On one occasion, David Edwards revealed that his wife picked up a glass coffee table and hit him on the head with it.
On the night before his death, David Edwards’ daughter discovered her father in the bathroom with a knife wound to his chest.
The daughter confronted her mother, who said that she did not mean to hurt her husband. The next day, David Edwards was found dead.
Sharon Edwards told police that her husband grabbed a knife before she took it away. He then walked into the knife, causing the stab wound to his chest.
The coroner saw evidence of regular attacks caused by a sharp object. The coroner revealed that David Edwards had a superficial wound from the day before he died.
His body was said to have been covered with bruises and abrasions. Stab wounds were also present on the thighs, knees, fingers and scalp.
