This is just a brief update, for those of you as horrified as I was that a man can stab his wife over 100 times because he considers her to be an inferior card player!
Steve Green was sentenced to 23 years imprisonment for the murder of his wife. They had been married just over a year, having met each other at their local bridge club.
He stabbed her several times after he killed her, in what was described as "a frenzied attack". Although he left home 3 times, according to CCTV footage, to visit his off-licence, he made no effort to inform anyone of Carole's death. When Carole's father rang to ask if Carole was likely to want to play cards one evening, he simply said "I don't think so."
I hope he receives the same care and compassion in prison that he showed to his innocent wife.
