A 50-year-old woman Lesley Bradbury has stabbed her boyfriend after he told her she had packed too many clothes for their holiday.
Bradbury descended into a “pathological” rage when she found out her boyfriend Gary Moore had taken some of the items she had packed out of the car for their New Year’s Eve getaway.
Minshull Street Crown Court heard Bradbury suffered from a mental health condition which causes her to hoard goods and protect them.
Police had rushed to the Middleton home in Greater Manchester to find Moore bleeding from his bicep while Bradbury was heard shouting “he deserved it”.
Moore refused to give a statement to police and it is thought the couple are still together. No details of his treatment were given to the court and few details of the stabbing were given at the hearing.
