A Borehamwood woman who stabbed her partner was jailed on Tuesday, March 2 for 14 months.
Victoria Woods, 34, was heard arguing with the man at their home in Crown Road by several people in the street.
St Albans Crown Court heard the couple were seen going in and out of the property with Woods shouting: “Don’t go anywhere you f…… p….. I will kill you.”
Prosecutor Terrence Woods (correct) said the man got into his Fiesta to drive off, but the defendant climbed onto the bonnet shouting: “Stop you p…. I am going to kill you.”
He went back inside, but two minutes later came out shouting: “She has f…… stabbed me. Call the ambulance. Call the police. Help, help, help.”
Woods was heard to say: “Stay with me. Stay with me. I am really sorry.”
The victim was treated for a stab wound to the lower back at the Royal Free Hospital in London.
Woods, of Crown Road, Borehamwood appeared for sentence having pleaded guilty to wounding the man the afternoon of Monday, June 24. 2019. (Correct) She had seven convictions for 16 offences.
Defending, Nichola Roberson had earlier told the court that they couple had been in a relationship since the summer of 2018. “It was extremely volatile due to drink and drugs.”
On Tuesday she said the couple had been the victims of cuckooing – when drug dealers take over the home of vulnerable people to use as a base.
Ms Roberson said since her arrest in June 2019 Woods had been on a 12-hour a day electronic curfew.
Jailing her, Judge Nigel Lithman QC said: “To pick up a knife and use it in the circumstances you did is wholly unacceptable. You have spent more than a year obeying a curfew and I take that into account.”
