For Stuart Gallear, 51, and his late wife, Mandy Gallear, 42, their story is not the happily ever after every couple hopes for when they get married. The couple’s marriage of 20 years ended on October 6 last year when Stuart stabbed Mandy repeatedly with a kitchen knife at their home in Hindley, near Wigan in England.
Stuart had just found out his wife was having an affair with his mate a day before and he lost it during an argument with her and stabbed her then he quickly called for an ambulance but by the time it came, Mandy was found unresponsive on the kitchen floor. Stuart is being tried in Manchester Crown Court.
“Mandy Gallear fell in love with Mark Prescott and in early 2016 confided in a work colleague that she wanted to leave the defendant but felt unable to do so because of her children. She thus continued to live under the same roof as the defendant, but maintained her relationship with Mark Prescott until the time of her death,” Bassano said.
Things fell apart on the 5th of October last year when Mr. Prescott’s partner found out about the affair. Prescott’s stepson went to the Gallear family home in Makinson Avenue and informed Stuart of the affair and that was the first time he became aware of the identity of the person his wife was romantically involved with. He confronted his wife and she confirmed she was in love with Prescott and wanted a separation.
Stuart later sent text messages to Prescott, one of which said “big mistake” and the other “just found out you f***** my wife”. He later threatened him on the phone, saying, “I am not coming for you now but I will find you and I will kill you.”
“I made a stupid pass at her sister and regret it ever since and was trying to rebuild until you got involved”.
“I have just stabbed my wife. We have had a break-up and I have just lost it… I just lost it.” He proceeded to perform chest compressions on his wife and attempted to stem the bleeding as he twice told the operator to get to the scene as quick as possible.
The trial continues.
