EXCLUSIVE: DETECTIVES CONTINUE ATTEMPTED MURDER PROBE AFTER WOMAN STABBED AND DOG KILLED IN BINSTEAD ATTACK

831c665f-e05f-4f5e-8401-f1601306cfd8Detectives are continuing to investigate a man in his 50s on suspicion of attempted murder after he allegedly stabbed his wife in the neck and killed the family dog, Island Echo can reveal.

Investigations into last Monday’s incident on Newnham Road in Binstead are continuing, although Police left on Thursday after 4 days of examinations of the bloody crime scene.

As previously reported by Island Echo, Armed Police descended on the usually quiet residential road at around 11:15 on Monday 20th June following reports of a serious assault. Witnesses have told Island Echo that a woman was seen to be bleeding profusely, with armed officers calling for a male inside the address to put down a weapon and open the front door.

The road was sealed off as Police isolated the threat and made the scene safe to allow paramedics to move in. The Thames Valley Air Ambulance was scrambled to the scene but was stood down whilst overhead.

Hampshire Constabulary confirmed last week that a woman sustained serious but not life-threatening head injuries, but have refused to comment any further on what exactly happened at Newnham Road.

Island Echo can now reveal that the victim – a woman in her 50s and the wife of the accused – was stabbed on the right-hand side of her neck. It’s also revealed that a dog was stabbed to death, with the suspect then turning the knife on himself. The male in his 50s was treated at the ‘gruesome’ scene before being cuffed, placed in a neck brace and conveyed to St Mary’s Hospital.

It has been confirmed that the suspect remains in hospital under Police guard. Once released from hospital, he will be quizzed by detectives and the custody clock will begin – with Police looking to charge the male with the attempted murder of his wife.

Neighbours have expressed their shock at the situation and detailed that the couple had only recently returned from holiday. Door-to-door enquiries have been taking place in the neighbourhood to build up a better picture of the couple and the events of 20th June.

I expect the judge will add an extra hour to the short sentence he is likely to receive in some insulting attempt to pretend to take into account the killing of their pet.

How vile to kill a pet that has depended on them, and trusted them and no doubt shown loyalty to this piece of …

I hope his mind is haunted forever and he has a long and painful terminal illness.

Thoughts and prayers with the injured lady. I wonder if the local constabulary would consider the situation suspicious, or do a thorough investigation, if the elderly couple in the cottage behind The Gaiety fire in Ventnor had burned to death. They very nearly did, but investigation has miraculous stopped.

Bastard. If he wasn’t happy in his marriage, get a divorce. What had the poor dog done to deserve being killed. Hope he rots in prison. His poor wife.

Let’s hope it’s not the same police that investigated the fire down Ventnor because if it is she will be charged not him.

Gosh so much speculation as to why this awful incident took place. Wait until there is more information on who stabbed who – including the killing of the dog.

Unless the dog savaged a child for no reason, no decent person would every consider stabbing their pet, or even perhaps their wife.
