Husband who slit his cheating wife’s throat after she ‘flipped like The Incredible Hulk’ during a furious row is cleared of murder
Robert Rhodes, 43, of Earlswood, Surrey, claimed he acted in self defence after his wife Dawn, 38, ‘attacked’ him at their home. Rhodes had discovered his partner of 21 years was seeing another married man when he secretly went through messages on her mobile phone.Prosecutors claimed that Rhodes cut his wife’s throat from behind in a ‘coup de grace’ manoeuvre during the final row in the dining room of the house in Earlswood. But Rhodes was cleared of murder after he described to the Old Bailey how Dawn lashed out with a knife during a row and hit him over the head.
