A woman who stabbed her husband for 24 years snatched the phone from his hand when he tried to call for help and told the operator: “I thought I had his heart, but he didn’t. didn’t, “a court said.

Penelope Jackson, 66, stabbed her husband David, 78, in the kitchen of their home on Parsonage Road, Berrow, Somerset on February 13 this year. He managed to call an ambulance to say he had been stabbed and can be heard screaming in pain the last time Jackson stabbed him.

Bristol Crown Court heard Jackson himself pick up the phone and whisper to the operator, “I killed my husband or tried because I had had enough.”

When asked where he was, he replied, “I hope he bleeds in the kitchen.”

On the first day of her murder trial, the jury heard that Jackson repeatedly refused to help her husband when asked to take action, such as squeezing the wound or throwing a towel, to stop the bleeding.

Prosecutor Christopher Quinlan QC said, “(Jackson) was calm and determined and maybe resigned in places and in his own words not mine,” he dialed.

During an 18-minute phone call when police and paramedics attended the scene, she said: “I thought he had his heart but he didn’t, then twice in the ‘abdomen.”

She added: “Your lower abdomen is a son of a bitch.”

Mr. Quinlan said: “(Jackson) will consent to the unlawful murder (of Mr. Jackson) or manslaughter, but she denies that her guilt properly relates to her murder.”

In the appeal, which was played in its entirety before the jury, Jackson can be heard calmly telling the operator that her husband “moans on the kitchen floor” and adds that he “has holes.”

When asked to give her a clean, dry cloth, she replied, “I’m not helping her, the paramedics can help her, but I can’t. ”

Jackson told the appeals manager that she stabbed him because “he thought he couldn’t go through with it,” adding, “That’s total bullshit.”

Then he says, “You deserve everything you get” and adds, “I will accept whatever awaits me.

“I’ll end up in jail, which is better for my life now.”

When the call manager asks her to “stop the bleeding because we don’t want her to die,” she replies, “Yes. ”

After being arrested while being driven to the police car, she told the police, “I know what I did and if I didn’t do it right I would be really upset.”

The court heard that the victim was Jackson’s fourth husband and third wife and that they were married in 1996.

The accused had worked in administration and accounting for the Royal Air Force and later in the military, where she met the victim who had been promoted from private to lieutenant colonel.

Before the couple moved to Somerset, the couple had lived in Germany and France and were described by friends as happy together.

A friend told police that their relationship “was nothing out of the ordinary,” while another said: “Sometimes they disagreed, argued and argued, but it didn’t. never lasted long ”. .

But at the end of December 2020, the police were called to his home after an argument over a television remote control.

The accused told police that she locked her husband on her porch to “calm down”, but that he took him with the poker on his wood stove.

She claimed she acted against her character after surgery to replace the battery of a deep brain implant used to treat a condition that made her hands and limbs tremble.

Mr Quinlan told the jury they would hear about the difficulties in Jackson’s relationship, but added, “However, there is a difference between a relationship with occasional difficulties and an abusive, compulsive and controlling relationship.

“I use those words because that’s what Penelope Jackson used to describe her relationship with David Jackson: he was violent, she said, he controlled and coerced her.”

The process, which is expected to take three weeks, is continuing.
