THIS is the chilling moment a wife told cops “I should have stabbed him a bit more” as her husband lay bleeding to death on the kitchen floor.

The shocking 999 call she made and bodycam footage of her arrest has now been released after the end of the prosecution case.
She calmly spoke to the operator and told them her 78-year-old husband was “in the kitchen bleeding to death with any luck.”
Jackson refused to give him any medical assistance despite the pleas of the call handler.
She stated: “I killed my husband because I’ve had enough.
“I might go and stab him again. I am in the lounge, he is in the kitchen bleeding to death with any luck.”
She added: “He threatened me before, but he’s not threatening me now.”

She repeatedly tells the operator she doesn’t want any help or wants to help her husband in any way to stem the bleeding.
She added: “I am not doing anything to help him.
“He deserves everything he has got – I accept everything that is coming my way. I might just go and do it again.
“I did it the once and then he said ‘I wouldn’t do it again’ so I did it twice more.
She also tells the operator she thought she had stabbed him in the heart – but added: “He doesn’t have one.”
The jury heard the defendant had been charged with murder, which she denies, but she had accepted manslaughter.
The court was told the couple married in April 1996 and had both been married several times before.
