26-year old Farai Kambarani was sentenced to 25 years in prison after he was convicted of the attempted murder of social worker Ruth Nayamazana (34) in the United Kingdon. Kambarani wrongly blamed Nayamazana for not letting him see his child. The court heard that Kambarani punched Nayamazana in the head 10 to 20 times before running a knife across her throat. Kambarani was found guilty by a jury of attempting to kill Ruth Nayamazana by a majority of 10 to 2.
In passing sentence Judge Philip Bartle QC of the Luton Crown Court said:
You became fixated with Ruth and saw her as an obstacle to you seeing your daughter – there was no justification for that whatsoever

You took a knife to kill Ruth. You put surgical gloves on. You took the knife. You shouted she was stopping you from seeing your daughter.
You began your planned attack and punched her 10 to 20 times and told her you were going to teach her a lesson.
