A teacher was arrested on a charge of attempted murder after slamming her baby’s head into the floor because her boyfriend threatened to break up with her, police in the United Kingdom said.
Now, 34-year-old Kim Clark of Ashford, has been sentenced to serve 12 years in prison after pleading guilty to attempted murder.
According to the police investigation, Clark met David Hamer, the father of her son, on an online dating site. Shortly thereafter, she became pregnant.
Clark was extremely jealous and suspicious of Hamer. She suspected him of having affairs with friends and coworkers. She also threatened to kill herself numerous times.
When Hamer told her that he decided to leave her, she followed him, carrying the 15-week-old boy in her arms. After apologizing to him, she threw the boy to the hard ground.
Clark then threatened to kill herself and followed her boyfriend into the kitchen. She took a knife and tried to stab her boyfriend.
She pressed the knife on Hamer’s abdomen, but he managed to disarm her. The child was taken to the William Harvey Hospital, and was then transferred to the King’s College Hospital in London.
The boy’s life was saved, but he is suffering from seizures and weakness in his left arm and leg.
