Thurlby woman spared jail after stabbing her husband while she was suffering with PTSD




A woman who stabbed her estranged husband with a kitchen knife was spared an immediate jail sentence after a judge accepted she was a victim of domestic abuse and significant provocation.

Susan Wheeler, 63, was suffering from post traumatic stress disorder caused by abuse during her 30 year marriage when she stabbed her husband once in the chest.

Mrs Wheeler rang 999 after carrying out the stabbing at the couple's former matrimonial home in Thurlby, near Bourne, and remained at the scene until police and paramedics arrived.
