Thought booties should be tough? Arrrr... when I was a squaddie, my skin was not only water proof but also knife proof as well!
On a more serious note, this sounds like one of those crimes of passion. She probably did it in the heat of the moment (so it sounds like), so I doubt she'll get life for murder. Maybe a few years for manslaughter methinks.
Too true. If he'd have been the one who 'lost it' in a moment of madness there'd have been headlines of 'Special Forces Soldier Kills Ex!!" and he'd have been found guilty of murder before it even got to court. She looses it over nothing, I mean she was his ex and he makes the mistake of calling her the wrong name, and people say "that's okay, it was acrime of passion'. What bollox! She's unstable enough to stab someone over nothing on an impulse, in which case put her away for a long time, or she went into the kitchen, got the knife went back to where he was and stabbed him.... Murder not Manslaughter!
Why is it that when a woman does something it's not her fault and if a man does something he's a 'monster'?
Having spent quite some time in Plymouth, this doesn`t surprise me. Just about all the females I met from that city have some kind of hang up or mental/emotional problem, not sure why. I always took the precaution of using "Dear" or "Sweetheart" when dating them instead of their first name just in case of this kind of occurence. Never had the problem in any other town.
