Evil couple stabbed dog breeder ‘so she would feel same pain her puppies did’

A couple were so devastated at the sudden death of their new puppy they decided to take revenge on the dog breeder and planned to stab her a total of 13 times – once for each puppy in the litter.

Chelsea Rees and Michael Kingston demanded Hayley Stoker be made to suffer after blaming her for the death of their young pooch, whose stomach “exploded” days after the purchase, Swansea Crown Court heard.

Kingston, 31, plunged a knife into Hayley after she opened the front door of her Swansea home whilst Rees, 26, had fallen asleep and missed the stabbing.

The victim managed to shut the door and ring the police before a pal of Rees tipped off cops that she had been threatening to stab Hayley in the stomach, reports Wales Online.

She was then found with a suitcase and three knives before admitting she wanted to “finish off” the woman.

Kingston was arrested and initially answered "no comment" to all questions asked before requesting a break and then telling officers he had gone to the house to stab Hayley because one of the puppies had died due to her breeding.

He said he had waited until it was dark to knock on the door because he didn't want any children living nearby to see what was going to happen.

He fumed: "It's not fair – she was not feeling the same pain as the dogs did".

Hayley, who said the puppy was healthy when she sold it, is "living in a world of fear" and has anxiety following the attack, her victim impact statement claimed.

Kingston, of Brunswick Street in Swansea, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit grievous bodily harm with intent, inflicting grievous bodily harm with intent, and possession of a bladed article when he appeared in the dock for sentencing.

Rees, of Pedrog Terrace in Swansea, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit grievous bodily harm with intent, making threats to kill, and possession of bladed articles when she appeared alongside her co-defendant.
