Wife jailed over TV row killing
Wednesday 07 December 2011
A dental nurse who killed her husband during a row over what to watch on television was jailed yesterday for 10 years.
Leonora Sinclair, 50, wanted to see Harry Hill's TV Burp while 73-year-old Lloyd insisted on viewing football.
As the row escalated, Mr Sinclair was stabbed with a large kitchen knife in the back of his left thigh and lay bleeding to death in their home.
Sinclair, from Enfield, north London, had previously been found guilty of manslaughter at the Old Bailey, but was cleared of murder.
Mr Sinclair, a driver for a church care centre, was scared of his wife, who had attacked him before, the court heard.
Judge Stephen Kramer told Sinclair: "I am satisfied you are a domineering person – particularly when you have taken drink."
