Wife from Hell

Quote:
'Bullying' bride given life for murdering solicitor husband was previously convicted of attacking ex-boyfriend

Sharon Edwards, 42, is found guilty of the murder of her husband David, 51, just two months after their wedding in Las Vegas



A "violent and domineering" wife who stabbed her solicitor husband to death was jailed for a minimum of 20 years for his murder on Tuesday, as it emerged she had previously been convicted of attacking an ex-boyfriend.

Sharon Edwards, 42, showed no emotion as she was found guilty of the murder of her husband David, 51, just two months after their wedding in Las Vegas.

She was sentenced to life imprisonment and told that it would be 20 years before the parole board could consider her for release.

A jury rejected her claim that Mr Edwards, a respected defence solicitor, had walked into a kitchen knife which she had taken off him during a row in August last year.

Rob Jansen, CPS
"Sharon Edwards behaved in a domineering and possessive way with her husband. She seemed to resent any of his past or even present friends, family and colleagues."

Mr Justice William Davis told her: "You have a violent and bullying nature. This deadly attack with a deadly weapon was the culmination of long term bullying by you of this highly respected member of the community.

"Your bullying of him robbed people of a decent man who was a highly valued member of the community."

The judge quoted a tribute from a magistrate in Chorley, Lancashire where Mr Edwards was a well known solicitor.

It said: "David was a very engaging personality with a wry grin who was proud of his reputation for integrity. His tragic death has affected the Chorley bench very deeply who held him in extremely high regard."

Rob Jansen, of the Crown Prosecution Service, said after the case: "This domestic abuse was one of violence by a woman against a man. It had all the dreadful hallmarks of this type of offending.

"Sharon Edwards behaved in a domineering and possessive way with her husband. She seemed to resent any of his past or even present friends, family and colleagues.

"She behaved as though she expected him to devote his entire attention and time to her and made an overbearing nuisance of herself at his work.

"She had been violent to Mr Edwards early on in the relationship but it escalated as time went on. There is no evidence that he ever retaliated physically to her assaults.

"He submitted to his wife's demands to cover up her behaviour and continued to say that he loved her. Her final claims that he had walked into the knife which killed him have clearly been rejected by the jury.

"Domestic abuse can come in all sorts of guises and this case is another in the sad catalogue of violent repressive relationships that seem to rob the victim of their power or ability to stop the violence."

The trial had been told that mother of four Edwards "quite liked the idea of being a solicitor's wife" and had moved into Mr Edwards's four-bed detached home in Chorley, Lancashire.

But she was "domineering, possessive and very jealous" and physically attacked her husband on several occasions during heated rows.

Mr Edwards, who was "besotted" with his wife had to use make up to cover up a black eye and bruised lip for their wedding photos, Manchester Crown Court was told.

The couple married in Las Vegas on June 28, 2015, but less than two months later Mr Edwards, who had previously been a partner in a local firm, was dead.

Prosecutor Anne Whyte QC said: "Less than two months after their wedding she killed him at home with a kitchen knife during a domestic argument."

The court heard that domestic violence victim Mr Edwards had even been recorded saying his new wife could "knock him out with one punch" and that she hit "rather hard".

Jurors were told that Mr Edwards had been "under the thumb" after meeting his wife-to-be in June 2014. He was said to have been "plainly besotted" with her.

Miss Whyte added: "The prosecution say that Sharon Edwards was violent towards David Edwards well before his death and that David Edwards' response to that violence was to tolerate it and not report it to the police.

"Despite the turbulence that was to characterise their relationship, he was plainly besotted with her and plainly felt that she was the one for him."

Edwards claimed to the court in evidence that her husband had "walked onto the knife" which she had taken from him during an argument.

She claimed that the couple then went to bed where she performed a sex act on him before leaving him to sleep.

Edwards said she found him dead in bed seven hours later. The jury was told that Mr Edwards had died from internal bleeding about four hours after being stabbed.

Before sentencing, the court heard that Edwards had previous convictions and cautions related to domestic abuse including a 2004 attack on a former partner who was bitten on the forearm and punched to the side of the face.

Mr Justice Davis said Mr Edwards was "a hugely valued member of the community in Chorley and elsewhere".

He read out part of a letter he received from a magistrate who sat in Chorley where Mr Edwards would regularly represent clients.

It stated: "Over the years we have come to know David well. He was a very engaging person with a wry grin. He was always proud of his reputation and integrity as an officer of the court.

"His tragic death has affected every member of the Chorley bench, and I am sure the wider legal fraternity, very deeply. David was held in extremely high regard by every member of the Chorley bench."

Addressing the defendant, the judge said: "It is clear that was a view widely held and your bullying of him, which ended with this tragic death, has robbed people of a decent man.

"You are someone who has attacked people in the past. You have a bullying and violent nature."

He said he was "quite satisfied" that it was not the first time she had attacked Mr Edwards with a knife and that over the preceding months she had assaulted him on more than one occasion.

The judge added: "This deadly attack was the culmination of long-term bullying by you on this respected member of the community."

He said he accepted that she did not intend to kill him but that she certainly meant to cause really serious harm.

Edwards showed no emotion on delivery of the verdict or when she was led from the dock.

Her barrister, David Fish QC, said the mother-of-four was "at a very low ebb" and had "lost everything".

Baffles me why someone would even stay with a bitch like that. It's not like he's plain ugly or something.

Too many men are embarrassed to admit they are being abused at home. I wish more guys would speak up. There's nothing to be ashamed of. It's just as bad as a man abusing his wife and something needs to be done!

Re: Wife from Hell

It goes to show what a bit of war paint can do, the before and after shots are very telling. Blind love is all consuming I guess.

Re: Wife from Hell

Most women have a part of them that comes straight from Hell itself that wants to destroy all men.

Some indulge it.

Some don't.

Wife rips off her Romanian husband’s testicles with her bare hands after he refused to help with the housework on International Women’s Day

Ionel Popa, 39, was rushed to hospital after his scrotum was torn open
His wife Marinela Benea, 40, said she had not realised her own strength
But the mother-of-one added that he had 'deserved' the severe injury
Mr Popa remains in a stable condition while police investigate the attack

A Romanian woman tore off her husband's left testicle after he failed to give her flowers on International Women's Day and then refused to help with the housework.

Ionel Popa, 39, from Vaslui County in the north east of the country, was rushed to hospital with his scrotum torn open after his wife Marinela Benea, 40, launched a vicious attack.

The mother-of-one grabbed hold of her husband's testicles and pulled violently during the argument.

Mr Popa's left testicle was left hanging out of his scrotum after the skin was ripped apart.

He was forced to undergo emergency surgery to repair the damage and remains in a stable condition.

Following the incident, Ms Benea said she did not know her own strength, adding that her husband deserved what had happened to him.

She said: 'Ionel had been given a bottle of wine for a day’s work instead of getting paid, and had arrived home drunk.

'When he gets drunk, he changes. All night he made me keep the fire on because he was cold and I did it to avoid having an argument.

'In the morning I opened the curtains and told him to go out and do some work, or at least to help with the household chores but he shouted that I’m not entitled to give him orders.

'I told him he was not any kind of man and I grabbed his testicles.

'It was not my fault that he pulled away, and that’s when it happened.

'I thought maybe that some ice would solve the problem, but he insisted on calling an ambulance.

'He was pretty annoyed.'

The couple have been together for 15 years and have a 15-year-old son.

Paramedic Aurora Popa said: 'The man had a severe open wound on his scrotum.

'He told us his wife had attacked him because he did not give her flowers for International Woman's Day.'

The attack is currently being investigated by police.
Damn I got uneasy feeling down there because of this story.

Actually that's not even fun. Crazy shit.
