Woman gets life in prison 5 years after stabbing husband 65 times, killing him

An Israeli woman is sentenced to life behind bars over the gruesome murder of her husband five years ago.

According to the indictment, the 58-year-old stabbed her 66-year-old husband, who had movement disabilities, by stabbing him 65 times all over his body while he was preparing to go to work.

“She stabbed him in the face, neck, abdomen, chest and back with the intention of causing his death,” says the indictment, which has been accepted by the Haifa District Court. “She first stabbed him with a vegetable knife she took from the kitchen, and when she saw the blade had become bent due to the stabbings — she went to the kitchen, took a meat knife, went back to him and continued stabbing him.”

The woman will also pay the couple’s five children and other relatives a total of NIS 258,000 ($75,000).
