Ramsgate Woman Jailed for Knife Attack

The Isle of Thanet Extra reports that a 30-year-old woman described by a judge as emotionally unstable has been jailed for two-and-a-half years for stabbing her former boyfriend.

Maria Halliday knifed Alan Naylor four times while he was fighting with her new partner, Canterbury Crown Court was told.

Halliday, of Clements Road, Ramsgate, appeared for sentence having admitted unlawfully wounding Mr Naylor in April last year. The court heard that she had had a drink problem in the past, for which she received medication.

Jailing Halliday, Judge Adele Williams said: “You used a knife in the context of a complicated domestic situation. You are an emotionally unstable person who misuses alcohol.”
