A former pub landlord from Suffolk has denied murdering his wife.

Paul Green, 59 of The Old Bell Inn, Marlesford near Woodbridge is accused of killing 53-year-old Sharon Green.

Ipswich Crown Court heard how Mrs Green's body was found at the former pub on 20 November 2009.

She had been stabbed repeatedly in the chest with a World War II bayonet. Mr Green is accused of murdering his wife in a jealous rage because he thought she was having an affair.

The court was told Mr Green believed his wife had begun a relationship with a thatcher who had been repairing the roof of the former pub where they lived.

Mr Green was arrested after crashing his car into a tree on the A12.

Pc Oliver Walker, who was with Mr Green after he was admitted to Ipswich Hospital, told the court Mr Green said: "I know what I have done. She was having an affair and I'd had enough."

The trial continues.
