A Wembley man who broke into his ex-girlfriend’s home and repeatedly stabbed her leaving her paralysed has been convicted of attempted murder.
Donovan Jerome Golding, of Atlip Road, attacked Nicolita Ghete with a kitchen knife after he forced his way into her home in Harrow in July last year.
Harrow Crown Court heard the 36-year-old knifed Ms Ghete’s hands, torso and neck with her most serious injuries being the ones to the back.
She would have died but for prompt action initially by the police and paramedics who were called to her home.
However she is now paralysed from the chest down.

Golding had claimed he had acted in self-defence but yesterday he was found guilty of her attempted murder.
Sergeant Ruby Kadiri from Harrow Police, who led the investigation, said: “I am pleased with the verdict but my first thought is for the victim in this case who now faces a life with a disability caused by a violent ex-partner who could not accept that his controlling relationship was over.
