A WREXHAM man was stabbed in the arm by his  sister during a drunken argument.

His sister’s partner then punched him.

Vicky Cuppit, 32, and Kevin John Bagnall, 45, both of Crescent Close in Wrexham, admitted common assault on Richard Thomas Cuppit on April 19 last year.

Mold Crown Court heard Miss Cuppit was ill in hospital and unable to attend yesterday’s sentencing hearing.

The case against Bagnall proceeded and he received an 18 month community order with supervision.

Judge Niclas Parry told him: “This is how people die – drunken people getting involved in arguments where there are knives.

“You were part and parcel of this. It probably all started because of you.

“But your involvement was by far the less serious.

“What makes it serious is that you were punching this person after he had been stabbed in the arm.”

However, he had pleaded guilty and, while he had previous convictions, his convictions for violence were very old.

He now had the care of Miss Cuppit due to her unfortunate illness.

Richard Edwards, prosecuting, said the three were having a drink together when an argument began.

The victim said both were abusive to him but it turned physical when Miss Cuppit made a comment and the victim pushed her.

It was then he felt scratching to his left arm and realised his sister had taken a knife and stabbed him in the bicep.

Bagnall approached him and said “you have just pushed Vicky” and punched him several times. He also punched him outside.

The court heard Bagnall had previous convictions for 115 offences but he had no conviction for violence since 1998, explained defending barrister Miss Maria Massellis.
