Man gets 3 years for stabbing girlfriend
A criminal court in Abu Dhabi sentenced a Kenyan man to three years in prison for stabbing his girl friend nearly 20 times after suspecting she had a relationship with another man, a newspaper reported on Wednesday.
The man told court that the woman is his wife but she denied his claims, saying their marriage was not completed because of his behavior.
The unnamed defendant confessed to stabbing the woman after seeing her drinking with another man but told court he did not mean to kill her.
“The court charged him of attempted murder as she was saved when neighbours intervened and stopped her boyfriend….the woman refused to drop the case, prompting the court to sentence him to three years and order his deportation,” the Arabic language daily Emarat Alyoum said.
