Shaun May told his wife to close her eyes for a surprise, counted down from 10 and stabbed her in the throat so hard the knife handle broke. May brutally attacked his wife Laura in October last year and was today convicted of attempted murder. The year-old man from Kent in Britain admitted causing the wound on October 9 but denies attempted murder. Maidstone Crown Court heard how Laura and Shaun had just had sex when he told her to lay on the bed and wait, because he had a "surprise" for her. Laura was expecting a gift but, instead, was stabbed violently between the shoulder and the neck.
