Father Gets 5 years jail for slashing the throat of his infant

A man who wanted to punish his wife for cheating decided to slash the throat of their baby.   The man, whose name cannot be released to protect the identity of the child, stabbed his 11-month-old, after becoming enraged at the child's mother.  The 33-year-old father appeared in a Calgary, Alberta court for sentencing last week. He had pleaded guilty earlier to one count of aggravated assault.

In passing his sentence, Judge Mike Dinkel, said:  “In a very cold-blooded and calculating manner he put the child on the floor, took off his clothes and cut him twice. The defendant used the attack on the child to inflict pain to the mother. The child was a tool. It was based on anger, rage and jealousy by the mistaken belief that his wife was cheating. He knew what he was doing with the intent to cause harm.”
