Thursday 12 April 2012
A man stabbed by his partner tried to propose to her in court after she was jailed for three years for the attack.
Tiffany Baillie, 32, plunged a kitchen knife into Gregory Todd's back at their flat in Hessle, East Yorkshire, in December, Hull Crown Court heard.
She admitted causing grievous bodily harm with intent at a previous hearing.
Chef Mr Todd, 48, brought an engagement ring to court in the hope Baillie would walk free.
He said his barrister took it to Baillie and he was relieved to be told that it fitted her.
