A 52-year-old man has been sentenced to more than 13 years imprisonment for the attempted murder of his wife.

Moses Conteh, of Church End Lane, was jailed at Reading Crown Court yesterday (18/10), after admitting a charge of attempted murder in connection with an incident at his home on Sunday 26 February.

Conteh attacked his 50-year-old wife with a knife and a cup of caustic soda, stabbing her in the stomach and causing burn injuries to her body.

The victim managed to break free but Conteh caught up with her in the hallway and they struggled again, before she fell down the stairway. She then managed to run free from the house and raised the alarm with a neighbour.
