‘blood poured’

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Development Update -

Prose­cu­tor Si­mon Tay­lor said Mr Ing­ham felt “a sear­ing pain” in his right shoul­der and as he got up from the floor was stabbed twice again.

As blood poured down his body, McKen­zie then called the emer­gency ser­vices and told the op­er­a­tor: “He should be ******* dead!”

When the po­lice ar­rived, McKen­zie was seen on the floor rolling a cig­a­rette, say­ing: “I’m sorry John. You just wouldn’t lis­ten,” it was claimed.

Mr Ing­ham told the jury: “I felt fright­ened. I thought I would bleed to death.

“I was ter­ri­fied be­cause I take blood-thin­ning medicine and I started to panic as the blood was run­ning down my legs and onto my toes.”

When po­lice of­fi­cers ar­rived shortly af­ter 1.45am they were told Mr Ing­ham had taken the weapon from McKen­zie and thrown it from the room be­fore beg­ging her to call an am­bu­lance.

He was taken to the Wil­liam Har­vey Hospi­tal in Ash­ford with what were orig­i­nally thought to be life-threat­en­ing in­juries, al­though he did not need surgery and has since made a full re­cov­ery.
