A man who stabbed his former partner in the liver has been jailed for more than two years.
Craig Wardle was given 25 months in prison after he pleaded guilty to inflicting grievous bodily harm and nine months in total for two counts of criminal damage and activating suspended sentences previously passed against him for motoring offences.
The 34-month sentence was handed down at Derby Crown Court on Friday, November 27.
Police were called to a flat in Ripley on August 8 following reports that a woman had been stabbed. She suffered a puncture wound to the chest and another to her back. She later underwent surgery and recovered.
Earlier that day, Wardle (27) had got into an argument with another man, whom he believed was flirting with his girlfriend.
Police believe Wardle, of Bailey Brook Drive, Langley Mill, armed himself with the knife to confront the other man.
