A Launceston woman, who stabbed her husband in a drunken row, accidentally saved his life.

Surgeons who patched up Gordon Parsons found he had liver disease.

It happened after a row with 47 year old Margaret Parsons at their home back in May.

Truro Crown Court was told neighbours heard blood-curdling screams, that lasted for half an hour.

He was rushed to hospital and treated for wounds to his chin, chest, wrist and bicep after being slashed with the knife.

But Mr Parsons revealed he is only getting treatment for liver disease because of her, hopes that she gets the help she needs - and wants her back.

The judge jailed Mrs Parsons for sixteen months, after she admitted wounding.
