A man has been jailed following an incident of attempted murder in Marlow.
On Wednesday 6th May 2020, at Aylesbury Crown Court, a 53 year old man of Crown Place, Crown Lane, Marlow was sentenced to 11 years and four months imprisonment after pleading guilty to the charges before him.
The conviction is in relation to an incident that occurred between 5.00pm and 6.00pm on Monday 11th November 2019. A 48 year old woman, who was known to the 53 year old man, was walking in The Chase near Parkway in Marlow when the 53 year old man assaulted her.
The 48 year old woman sustained twelve stab wounds to her torso and face and required extensive hospital treatment.
Investigating officer Detective Inspector Carl Wilson, of the Domestic Abuse Investigation Unit, based at Aylesbury police station, said: ‘This was an extremely distressing incident for the victim in this case.
I would like to thank her for the support and courage she has shown throughout this investigation.
Fortunately she survived despite her horrendous injures, and hopefully she can now move forwards with her life following this sentencing.
The level of violence displayed by [the 53 year old man] in this attack clearly showed an intent to kill.
Thankfully he pleaded guilty meaning the victim did not have relive the ordeal at trial. He now faces a lengthy jail term as a consequence of his actions.‘
The conviction follows an investigation by Thames Valley Police.
