Wiltshire Man Sentenced For Stabbing Ex-Lover’s Boyfriend
A Wiltshire man has been sentenced to eight years and eight months in prison yesterday after admitting a charge of wounding his ex-lover’s new boyfriend with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.
Bristol Crown Court heard that Mark Pritchard arrived at the home of his former gay lover Lee Corbin in Totterdown, dressed in a theatrical animal outfit, holding roses and love letters last October.
The Bristol Post reported that Mr Pritchard, from Warminster, managed to persuade his ex’s new boyfriend, Martin Williams, that he was carrying a “special delivery” from Mr Corbin, who was away on holiday. After reading out a number of love letters he had written himself, Pritchard persuaded Mr Williams to blindfold himself and wait in bed for “some treasure”.
