Natasha Gardener, 36, of Brooklands, Colchester, admitted GBH without intent and assault at Ipswich Crown Court.

The victim, aged in his 40s, was found with a single stab wound to the stomach at an address on Hythe Hill on 20 December 2017.

Gardener also received a one month sentence, to run concurrently, for assaulting another woman at the address.

“What happened on that night has left a lasting emotional impact on the two victims. Gardener’s violence was unprovoked and unwarranted and I’m glad that this has been reflected in a custodial sentence.”
