The wife of a former professional rugby player was sentenced after attacking her husband on a number of occasions. The court heard that the family problems started after the 23-year-old woman had doubts about his faithfulness.
The first assault occurred in March 2013 when she reportedly lunged at him with a knife following an argument, causing an injury to his shoulder, but he did not report the incident to the police at that time. The second incident occurred nearly two weeks later after she discovered her husband with someone else. The court heard that, on this occasion, she struck her husband in the face while he was carrying one of their children, and he later reported both incidents to the authorities.
