Only 8 years for murder, because it wasn't. What!!!

A wife who stabbed her husband to death during a drink-fuelled row a week before Christmas has been jailed for eight years.

Natasha Jex, 32, used a kitchen knife to inflict the single, fatal blow to her 52-year-old husband Neal at their home in the Penywaun area of Aberdare, South Wales, on December 17 last year.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

As someone asks; how can stabbing someone in the chest with a big knife ever not be murder?

I think it depends on the intention. If a 'drink-fuelled argument' turned nasty that's not to say that the perp intended to kill. Isn't that what the crime of manslaughter is about?
If it's agreed that drink meant that the woman was not responsible for her actions, isn't that the same as some of the defences offered in other types of crime, such as rape; GBH, etc.
Personally I;m sick to the teeth of seeing drunken louts. Our flight Cardiff/Dalaman in May was full of them; disgusting behaviour and loud foul language with graphic details of sex acts is not funny.

What is the sentence for a person who murders another in Turkey?

It varies very much according to the circumstances, for example the murder of a child may result in a much higher sentence. Generally a murder can expect an 'aggravated life sentence' although I am not sure of the meaning of 'aggravated'

Currently the death sentence is banned in Turkey but our 'leaders' are considering bringing it back for 'terrorists' who have killed.
