Darwin Called, Said He’s Had Enough Now…

A young woman whose cheating husband has been jailed for 20 years for attempted murder after he ferociously stabbed her at least 46 times has vowed to …

Rebuild her life? Move away and make a new start?

stand by him, a court heard.


Shannon Barnard, 21, suffered multiple wounds to her limbs and body, including her lungs, liver and bowels, as Michael Barnard repeatedly knifed her, telling her she “had to die”, in their home in Hextable.

Fourteen injuries were to her chest and breasts alone, with four penetrating her internal organs, and 10 to her abdomen.

Both her lungs collapsed and she has also been left with substantial and numerous scars which may require skin grafts.

Mrs Barnard spent 17 days in hospital.

She later told police she felt “every blow” and thought she would die. Doctors said she was “extremely fortunate” to have survived.

But she clearly has extensive brain damage.

Maidstone Crown Court heard she has forgiven her 25-year-old husband and plans to start a family with him on his release from prison.

Speaking during Barnard’s sentencing hearing, she replied when asked how she saw their future: “Just to be together and have the life that we both want with each other and have a family.”

Any child this couple have should be removed at birth.

    Stockholm Syndrome, about as clear a case as is possible. The woman needs help.

    Women are the most interesting creatures – no bottom to their depths.

    A lot of lessons for drawing here.

    Love is irrational.

    Women are irrational.

    Some men are born not to be killers.

    Nothing here makes any sense. The only rational consideration is that she’s completely terrified of his finding her and killing her. For the simple public good, he should be arrested, charged and imprisoned.

    No, no, no. They should both be sterilised to stop them passing on the “stupid gene”

    Michael Barnard was trying to help by stopping Shannon Barnard breeding.

    Hmm, “Shannon” imho another name meaning Thick Chav.
