Husband forgives cheating wife s death threat
Husband forgives cheating wife's death threat

A cheating wife who plotted to have her husband killed by her lover has reconciled with her spouse.

Katherine Poxon, 22, and Stephen Swallow, 44, yesterday pleaded guilty to conspiring to cause him grievous bodily harm, according to a Mail Online report.

But Steven Poxon has forgiven his wife and the pair are now again living together with their child in West Yorkshire.

Her husband even sat in the court where she and Swallow were due to stand trial for conspiring to murder him.

The court has previously heard that the young mother had allegedly asked her lover to kill her husband after he threatened to take custody of their child if she left the marriage.

The court was told that Poxon had allegedly sent her lover a text message to “get the job done”.

Police arrested Poxon and she was charged with soliciting murder, conspiracy to murder and perverting the course of justice.

Richard Clewes, defending Poxon, said his client had confessed to her husband about sending the texts but they had decided to make a go of their marriage.

Even as Poxon went through the court system, her husband posted on Facebook photos of the couple kissing passionately with the messages “you are my one in a million” and “this is for my baby girl LV U 2 bits bbe xxxxxxx”.

Swallow has been remanded in custody and Poxon was granted bail for prior to sentencing on March 21.
