A woman killed her husband after a furious row about him lighting the Yankee candles during a power cut.
Carol Rees was “upset and furious” that husband, Tony Rees lit the expensive candles shortly after a power cut.
Neighbours of Carol and Tony said they heard a furious row shortly after all the lights in the street went out. When Gwen Trindle who lives next door went to investigate, she found Carol in complete darkness sitting beside the dead body of her husband. She had stabbed him 15 times.
Gwen told reporters, “Carol loved her Yankee candles, she had them all around the house, she spent a fortune on them, Tony was so quiet it’s a real tragedy, especially since the power was only off for about 5 minutes.”
