A man who repeatedly stabbed his wife in front of their children following an argument has been jailed for 19 years.
Turkan Lowmani was sentenced today (February 26) for the incident on August 3 last year, which occurred at the couple’s home in Bradford.
His victim suffered 22 stab wounds, all inflicted with a small kitchen knife, and required several operations. Lowmani's trial heard he believed his wife was having an affair.
Lowmani, 32, was charged with attempted murder and was found guilty last month following a trial at Bradford Crown Court.
Detective chief inspector Stuart Spencer, said: “Domestic violence is a serious matter and Lowmani is fortunate that his partner survived what can only be described as a shockingly violent attack.
“The fact it took place in front of their children is even more shocking and I hope the victim and her children will find some comfort in the verdict of the court.
“I would also urge anyone who may find themselves in a volatile relationship to seek assistance from our District Safeguarding Units, so steps can be taken with partner agencies to prevent it escalating into more serious matters.”
