Mum Stabbed Lover With Carving Knife For Not Calling Every Two Hours
Mirror ^ | Jan 06, 2014 | Paul Byrne

Posted on 01/07/2014 4:45:53 PM PST by nickcarraway

A mum who left her boyfriend fighting for his life after knifing him following months of bullying has been jailed.

Rhiann Burnie, 21, was furious when Shane McMullen, 23, failed to ring her every two hours from a party and plunged an 8in carving knife into his shoulder when he got home, a court heard.

She then puffed a cigarette as she mopped up his blood .

The couple had been in a relationship for a year which was “happy and healthy” until Burnie’s “darker more sinister side” emerged, Burnley crown court heard.

She had pulled a knife on him twice before but he had managed to disarm her, the court heard .

She had also smashed doors and furniture in rages and given him a black eye.

Paramedics called to her home in Burnley, Lancs, after the April attack thought Shane was dead.

The bricklayer lost blood from a severed artery and now has memory loss and nightmares.

Burnie, who has a two-year-old daughter, admitted wounding and was sentenced to two years and eight months.

Mr Recorder Andrew Long said: "It’s clear Shane was close to death and only the skill of the medical team which operated on him saved his life.

“He continues to suffer physical and psychological effects from what you did and is likely to do so for some considerable time.”

So — he’s had to disarm her twice in the past and got punched in the eye — and he went back??

If only they had even stricter knife control in GB, this horrible instrument would never have attacked him!

“And he went back!” Could be her smacking his head last April has compromised his judgement even more that it was. Some very sad, low ego people will stay in a pairing like this, and will obey, until the point comes where even a masochist feels they have suffered enough.

I started dating again after a hiatus of two years. There’s more bunny boilers out there than I have ever seen. I don’t know if its the age or the society.

Dear Shane: She’s not that hot. She clearly doesn’t have a great personality. There’s no sex great enough to make up for either of those. Get the hell out of there.

You can smell the crazy on her.

She reminds me of some of the minor characters on “Torchwood”...

Some years ago I had a nutzo, ex-girl friend stand over me with a butcher knife in her hand. I talked her into giving it to me, and then I put it away. She went back and took it out of the drawer and threatened to kill herself. I talked her out of it again and got her out of my residence.

She then called the cops on me, believe it or not. I had to do some fast talking when the fuzz arrived. They heard my story and went back and threw her in the jug. When your partner starts picking up knives, maybe it's time to let the relationship go. I didn't want to wake up one morning with a knife sticking into my chest.

If it's any comfort, you probably wouldn't have woken up.

I don’t know how old you are but when a man finds himself single in his fifties (widower) the hunt is much more fun and reasonable. The real crazies are either dead or married to other crazies.
