A 69-year-old Northampton man has pleaded guilty to attempting to kill his wife.
Graham Coulson, aged 69, now of Jeyes Close, Moulton, appeared at Northampton Crown Court yesterday charged with attempted murder.
On the day he was due to go on trial for trying to strangle his wife, Delia, Coulson pleaded guilty.
A previous court hearing heard that Coulson was arrested on February 13 this year after police officers were called to the couple’s home in Dallington Road, Dallington, Northampton.
Sentencing was adjourned for 10 weeks to allow for a psychiatric report to be completed.
