The spouse of a woman who won a lottery of £5.5 million has pleaded guilty to trying to kill her at their home.
Stephen Gibbs, 45, initially denied attempting to kill Emma Brown, 49.
Today, he was due to stand trial for attempted murder but he changed his plea to guilty at Cardiff Crown Court, Wales Online reports.
Solicitor-Advocate Derrick Gooden, for Gibbs, asked for sentencing to be adjourned.
Addressing the defendant, Judge Richard Twomlow said: “You have now pleaded guilty to the offence of attempted murder, a serious offence.
“I ask for a pre sentence report and I am told there’s a psychiatric report. You face a lengthy prison sentence, you must be aware of that.”
Gibbs was remanded in custody to appear for sentencing at Merthyr Tydfil Crown Court on October 8.
Ms Brown, 49, was discovered with injuries to her face, stomach and arms at the property in Barry, South Wales, at around 10pm on January 30.
Friends and neighbours said they saw her being carried on a stretcher into an ambulance after the incident.
