Fenland man, 66, admits wounding his wife’s new partner
A 66-YEAR-OLD man has admitted causing grievous bodily harm to his estranged wife’s new partner when he appeared at court yesterday.
Clive Desborough, of Glebe estate, Tilney All Saints, near King’s Lynn, admitted wounding Michael Stratton with intent to cause grievous bodily harm on July 28, last year.
Desborough had originally been charged with the attempted murder of Mr Stratton and was due to face a retrial on the charge but then changed his plea before a jury was sworn in.
Desborough’s case was adjourned for full reports and he will be sentenced in July.
Judge Peter Jacobs said the reports should consider if Desborough posed any danger.
