A wife who suspected her husband was cheating lured him to bed and told him to close his eyes because she she had a 'surprise' for him, before plunging a knife into his chest
Nooshin Nedjah, 30, was jailed for 11 years on Friday over the attack at their flat after she became convinced her husband had married someone else.
Medi Sangachin, 36, suffered massive blood loss after the kitchen knife entered his heart and only survived the attack thanks to the skill of one of the country's leading surgeons, Dr Patrick McGoldrick.
Nedjah was cleared of attempted murder after a trial at Leeds Crown Court, West Yorks., but was convicted of wounding with intent.
The jury heard the couple are both originally from Iran and married in June last year after starting a relationship in 2010 when they met on a bus.
They set up home at a first floor flat in Leeds where neighbours got the impression they were not a happy couple.
