Young Brighton mum jailed for stabbing ex in the back
1:58pm Saturday 16th February 2013 in News
An 18-year-old woman has been jailed for three-and-a-half years after stabbing her ex in the back.
Young mum Amie Bray, of no fixed address but from Brighton, knifed Psarlay Jabarkhail as 999 operators listened in.
Lewes Crown Court was told that Mr Jabarkhail, who used to date Bray, had broken up with her when the attack took place.
She turned up at the home he shared with housemates in Brighton on March 10, 2012, and slashed at his wrists.
When she realised he had called 999 she launched at him again, stabbing him in the back.
He was taken to hospital but survived. In court she admitted assault.
Martha Walsh, prosecuting, said Bray lashed out, stabbing Mr Jabarkhail in the back.
When police and paramedics arrived Bray was “shaking” and sitting on the stairs.
She had tried to injure herself.
Bray wept as she was sentenced to three-and-a-half years in prison and was then ordered to stay at mental health unit Hellingly Hospital.
