Bradford Man Jailed For 'Shockingly Violent' Knife Attack On Wife

Turkan Lowmani

Turkan Lowmani's victim suffered 22 stab wounds.

A Bradford man, who repeatedly stabbed his wife following an argument, has been jailed for 19 years.

Turkan Lowmani was sentenced on Monday for the incident on 3 August last year, which occurred at the couple’s home in Idle Road. 

His victim suffered 22 stab wounds, all inflicted with a small kitchen knife, and required several operations.

Lowmani, 32, was charged with attempted murder and was found guilty last month following a trial at Bradford Crown Court.

Detective Chief Inspector Stuart Spencer, said: “Domestic violence is a serious matter and Lowmani is fortunate that his partner survived what can only be described as a shockingly violent attack.

“The fact it took place in front of their children is even more shocking and I hope the victim and her children will find some comfort in the verdict of the court.

“I would also urge anyone who may find themselves in a volatile relationship to seek assistance from our District Safeguarding Units, so steps can be taken with partner agencies to prevent it escalating into more serious matters.”
