Sharon Edwards, 42, convicted of murdering her lawyer husband, 51, two months after their marriage

Our thanks to Stuart for this. The start of the BBC article:

A woman who regularly beat her newly-wed husband has been convicted of his murder by stabbing him through the heart.

Sharon Edwards, 42, denied killing solicitor David Edwards at their home in Chorley, Lancashire, in August 2015.

The 51-year-old was found dead in bed with a chest wound, two months after the pair married in Las Vegas.

At Manchester Crown Court she was jailed for life and will serve at least 20 years.

Unusually for a BBC article, it has a section on male victims of domestic violence, starting with this:

While figures show the majority of those subjected to domestic violence are women, campaigners say there has been a rise in incidents where men are the victims.

The number of women convicted for domestic violence rose by 30% in the year to April 2015, from 3,735 to 4,866.

It marks an upward trend – the number of convictions involving female perpetrators is now six times higher than it was ten years ago.

There are some interesting comments from Mankind’s Mark Brooks.

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.

  1. Mike, its only six times higher because there is just so much of this happening from females that some just have to come out to the light of day!
