The Glarus High Court this week dealt with a case in which a woman was charged with seriously injuring her partner with a knife.
The knife she rammed into her partner’s stomach was 18 centimeters long. This is reported by “Southeastern Switzerland”. The violent argument, which ended in blood, took place in September 2017 at the Chilbi Näfels GL. This week, the 36-year-old Pole had to answer for the crime before the Glarner High Court.
At the end of September 2021, the cantonal court had already convicted the woman of attempted murder. However, the woman appealed against this, which is why the Supreme Court now had to rule on the case. While the public prosecutor’s office speaks of attempted murder, the perpetrator and the victim insist that it was an accident. Despite the attack, the man still loves her like the first day, the newspaper reports. “For me, she is the woman of my life, she has always helped me,” said the man in court. “Many concatenations” would have led to this accident that day.
After a stab wound, seven operations were necessary
The Chilbi evening begins with a boozy mood. The two, who have been a couple for two years at this point, visit several bars. The alcohol level is correspondingly high, as the blood values later show.
On the way home, the mood changes. Among other things, because of the ex-wife of the man, there is an argument. The man’s previous marriage, which he doesn’t tell her at the beginning of the partnership, repeatedly causes arguments. So also on the Chilbi evening. The conflict escalates in the car and both become violent. When she got home, the woman rammed a knife into her boyfriend’s stomach. Then she tries desperately to stop the bleeding from the dripping wound with a T-shirt. Due to injuries to the small intestine, he had to undergo six surgeries within four weeks. A seventh operation follows six months later.
Despite the serious injuries, the man is convinced: “She didn’t want to kill me.” The defendant, who admitted the act from the beginning according to the judgment of the first instance, is of the same opinion.
Did his lies stab her?
Her partner forgave her for the incident. Instead of making his partner a scapegoat, he even takes responsibility himself: “It’s largely my own fault, she was very angry with me because of my lies before.”
The act brought the two even closer together. “It’s tragic that it had to happen before I respected her,” said the man at the court questioning. He now takes more time for the partnership and the two would no longer argue. “We love each other.”
The Polish woman’s defense attorney pleads that her client did not condone the death of her partner and is demanding a prison sentence of 16 months, which could be extended to three years if the prognosis is good. According to the prosecutor, the present case involves at least serious bodily harm or even attempted murder. The judgment of the Supreme Court will be published in writing in the next few days.
