A MUM screamed “I’m going to kill you”, stabbing her husband seven times in a prosecco-fuelled rage after he boasted about cheating on her.
Deborah Rose, 47, unleashed the attack on husband John Rose – throwing a vase, jug of milk and vacuum cleaner at him before grabbing the kitchen knife.
The mum-of-three has been jailed for six years over the assault that unfolded at the couple’s home in Deal, Kent in February this year.
Canterbury Crown Court heard the married couple had romped before Mr Rose admitted to seeing another woman – with his furious wife shouting “I’m gonna kill you” and stabbing him seven times in the back, leg and arm.
Mr Rose staggered out of the flat in a nearby pub and staff called for an ambulance, before being airlifted to hospital with life-threatening injuries.
He suffered a collapsed lung and a stab wound to his liver, but managed to survive the attack.
Judge James O’Mahony last week jailed Rose after she admitted wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.
He said: “He thought he was going to die. You didn’t call an ambulance.
“The incident lasted just over an hour.
“Such was the force with which you stabbed him that when the knife came into contact with bone, it smashed the bone as well.”
The court heard that Rose also cut up her husband’s clothes in the fit of fury.
Rose was arrested after her husband was airlifted to a London hospital for treatment.
Detective Constable Mark Butler said: “The argument between Rose and her victim spiralled out of control.

“Rose reached for a knife in the heat of the moment and has proved she had every intention of using it, which could have had fatal results.
“She didn’t call an ambulance and he was forced to fend for himself and seek help from members of the public.
“I hope this prison sentence gives Rose time to reflect on her actions and understand the consequences of what she did.”
