A man who tried to kill his wife with a lump hammer while she slept has been detained indefinitely under the Mental Health Act.
62-year-old Paul Bond was found guilty of attempted murder yesterday (January 9) following a trial at Cambridge Crown Court.
The jury heard Bond attacked Dr Marian Bond at their home in Willingham Road, Over, near Swavesey, on July 11 last year.
The assault with a lump hammer left her with a severely fractured skull and jaw.
Bond has now been detained under Section 37 of the Mental Health Act 1983. A Section 41 restriction was also imposed, meaning Bond will not be released until a mental health tribunal has decided it is safe to do so.
Bond had already pleaded guilty to intending to cause grievous bodily harm.
Dr Bond was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge where she was placed in an induced coma and part of her skull was removed to save her life.
She has since made a partial recovery.
