A man who was stabbed 13 times and nearly killed by his girlfriend proposed to her during court as she was about to be sentenced.
What is more surprising is that he begged the judge not to sentence her.
According to the Russian state prosecutor Airat Bikmurzin, the man, Shakur, was nearly murdered in the knife attack, he only survived because he managed to flee the scene.
NTR-24 TV reported that Shakur proposed to the woman in the court when she stood and faced the judge.
Shakur appealed to the judge and said they intended to arrange the date of their wedding.
The Russian judge postponed the decision on sentencing until a future hearing.
Bikmurzin said, ‘The accused woman failed to fulfill her criminal intention due to circumstances she could hardly influence – the victim managed to escape from the crime scene and found medical help in time.”
He said that the man needed three weeks treatment in hospital for stab wounds all over his body.
Bikmurzin told the court, “Using the knife as a weapon, she stabbed the victim at least 13 times.”
He demanded a sentence of up to six years for intentionally causing damage to the health of the man and threatening his life.
The unnamed woman faces up to six years for the frenzied attack. She pleaded guilty to the stabbing incident but denied she had intended to murder her boyfriend and said she was drunk at the time.
It was unclear what the reason for the dispute was about.
