Betrayed husband is convicted of wife’s murder in Willenhall
A jilted husband who stabbed his wife to death after finding her lover at their family home has today (Wednesday) been jailed for life after being convicted of her murder.
Azad Singh killed mother-of-two Kulwinder Kaur after discovering her and the man at their Willenhall flat on 18 January this year.
The 46-year-old also left his wife’s companion with head and facial injuries although he was able to flee the property at The Pinnacle, Gomer Street.
Singh made a 999 call to say he had just killed his wife and officers rushed to the scene and arrested him in the car park.
He was found with a large kitchen knife in his jacket and with blood on his hands.
A post mortem examination revealed that Mrs Kaur suffered a fatal wound to the neck after being stabbed three times.
Singh - who admitted killing his 40 year-old wife to a friend - had denied murder claiming he had lost his self-control after his wife had taunted him about his sexual prowess - a claim later rejected by the trial Judge.
But he was today convicted following a seven day trial at Wolverhampton Crown Court. He pleaded guilty to wounding of the 40 year-old man who had been in the flat with Mrs Kaur at the time during a previous hearing.
He was sentenced to life imprisonment to serve a minimum 14 years.
Detective Inspector Justin Spanner, from Force CID, said: "There can be no justification for Singh’s actions - regardless of the emotions he may have been feeling at the time. A family has been tragically ripped apart and will have to live with the consequences of his brutal knife attack forever."
