A 46-year-old man, Azad Singh from Willenhall, West Midlands, UK, has been sentenced to life imprisonment after he stabbed his wife, Kulwinder Kaur to death when he caught another man hiding in their home.

Singh found his wife’s boyfriend, Majinder Virk hiding under his son’s bed when he returned from a night shift.

Metro UK reports that Kaur had been having an affair with Virk and was having sex with him when Singh returned from work.

Flying into a rage, Singh repeatedly punched and kicked Virk but his wife managed to get him out of the flat.

The angry husband then stabbed his 40-year-old wife three times using a large kitchen knife.

Singh was convicted on Wednesday and sentenced to life imprisonment to serve a minimum 14 years, after a seven day trial at Wolverhampton Crown Court.

Singh’s claim that he had lost his self control after his wife had taunted his sexual prowess, was rejected by the trial judge.

The police prosecutor, Miss Brand had earlier told that that Singh further punched and kicked Virk but that Mrs Kaur was able to open the front door and her lover escaped.

According to Brand, “After Mr Virk left only the defendant can say what happened next. He must have gone to the kitchen to fetch a knife and it must be the same time Mr Virk was making his exit through the door.

“The police found blood on the edge of a kitchen workshop immediately above the cutlery draw. It was Mr Virk’s blood. There can’t be any doubt it came from the defendant’s hands.

“We know his wife sustained three stab wounds. We know he left the flat leaving her body on the floor.

“Mrs Kaur was stabbed once in her neck, once on her shoulder and once in her side. The latter wound was found to be up to 15cm (5.9in) deep.”

Miss Brand added “Singh immediately visited family friend Onkar Singh and told him he had ‘killed his wife.’”

The judge, however, charged Singh with murdering his wife, sentencing him to life imprisonment.

Police Inspector, Justin Spanner, from Force CID, said, “There can be no justification for Singh’s actions regardless of the emotions he may have been feeling at the time.

“A family has been tragically ripped apart and will have to live with the consequences of his brutal knife attack forever.”
