A man has been jailed for 16-and-a-half years after being found guilty of attempted murder.

Aung Ko Min repeatedly stabbed a man in the chest after finding him in bed with his estranged wife in a house in Easton, Bristol.

The 33-year-old, from Hampshire, denied the offence but was found guilty following a trial at Bristol Crown Court.

Min’s victim suffered two punctured lungs, along with injuries to his liver, kidneys and ribs in the 17 May attack.

Investigating officer Detective Constable Fiona Keating said: “This was a frenzied assault on an innocent man and he is lucky to be alive.

“After finding his estranged wife in bed with the victim, Min actively made the decision to go downstairs, pick up a knife from the kitchen and return to stab the man three times in the chest and once to the shoulder”

“Min was arrested at the address and the scene was quickly secured.

“This was a real team effort and I hope the victim can now move on with their life knowing Min will serve a substantial time behind bars.”
