To cover up the violent crime she had committed, Joanne attempted to conceal the weapons in an upstairs bedroom, with help from her son before she was later arrested.

Detective Inspector Kerry Bull said: “This attack could have cost Kevin his life, of which he spent a number of weeks in hospital and a number of months recovering from his injuries.

“I’d like to thank my team for the hard work and dedication they showed throughout the course of the investigation.

“I hope that today’s sentencing will provide some comfort to Kevin in knowing that Joanne has been reprimanded for her unjustifiable actions.
