Wife in steak knife attack

Have your say

A WOMAN attacked her husband and threatened him with a steak knife as she accused him of having an affair.

Jane Wright, 53, stormed into the couple’s bedroom in a drunken rage and tore the covers off sleeping John Wright before repeatedly punching him.

When Mr Wright went to the kitchen at their home in Norwood Court, Whitburn, his wife followed him and brandished a four-inch knife.

Wright appeared at Livingston Sheriff Court yesterday on what was the couple’s 30th wedding anniversary.

She pleaded guilty to assaulting her husband on September 15, and was ordered to carry out 40 hours of unpaid work within six months.
