A MAN who plunged a kitchen knife into his brother’s chest following an argument has been jailed for five years.
Jason Quimby (37) of James Murray Mews, Mansfield, stabbed his brother on two occasions in April this year.
He pleaded guilty to grievous bodily harm (GBH), actual bodily harm (ABH) and making threats to kill and was sentenced at Nottingham Crown Court.
Quimby attacked his 30-year-old brother on 18th April following an argument. He picked up a knife and threatened to kill him before stabbing him four times in the chest, resulting in small, shallow wounds.
He put the knife down, apologised for his actions, and the pair made amends.
His brother went on to return to the address the next day and they drank together. They went on to have another argument and Quimby retrieved the knife, plunging it into his brother’s chest.
Even as Quimby called an ambulance for his wounded sibling, he threatened to kill him if he was not quiet.
Quimby was arrested and admitted carrying out the attack in an interview with police and told officers he had been annoyed with his brother and intended to kill him.
He had previously been given a three-year rehabilitation order after stabbing the same brother in the arm in December 2003.
He has been jailed for five years and also handed an additional three-year extended license period, during which time he will remain under supervision.
Pc Sarah Clarke, the investigating officer, said: “Quimby knew exactly what he was doing and fully intended to kill his brother.
“He had displayed violent behaviour towards him in the past and lashes out when he becomes agitated. Domestic violence can occur between husband and wife, boyfriend and girlfriend and between siblings.
“It is unacceptable in any form and Nottinghamshire Police will continue to identify and apprehend offenders to the fullest extent.“
