Husband convicted of trying to kill wife on hospital ward

A jealous husband has been found guilty of trying to kill his wife by strangling her as she worked in a hospital intensive care unit.

Raging Royston Jones, 39, tried to kill Claire, 35, in front of shocked medical staff after claiming he had a hand-grenade.

Her colleagues "heroically" managed to stop the savage attack by muscular 6ft Jones in the intensive care unit caring for seven critically-ill patients.

Staff nurse Claire was unconscious by the time her bare-chested 15-stone husband was pulled off her by fellow hospital staff.



Prosecutor Michael Jones said: "He was a jealous, possessive and aggressive man who was convinced his estranged wife was in another relationship."

Newport Crown Court heard after being arrested Jones told police: "I'll do two years for this. The court better not let me out or I'll finish the job. I won't be in jail forever."

Jones had a history of drug abuse - and had taken drugs that day with the intent of killing his wife.

Jones, of Brynmawr, Gwent, denied attempted murder but was found guilty by a jury.

Sentencing was adjourned but he was remanded in custody after being told a prison term in inevitable.
