Wife, 49, ‘stabbed husband to death with her dress-making scissors because he wouldn’t help tidy her up’
Mother-of-five Sandra Clinch (right), 49, killed spouse Alan (left), 48, aftera ‘blazing row’ which started when he refused to tidy up their home in Cornwall before some friends came over for lunch. Mr Clinch died from a single wound to the chest, caused by scissors, which had been plunged 3-4in into his body, between two ribs. Experts argue it is ‘extremely unlikely’ that the force from throwing scissors would be enough to inflict the wound. Clinch denies murder.
