A man who stabbed his wife nine times after she had "cybersex" with another man has been found guilty of causing grievous bodily harm by a West Australian Supreme Court. Father of three Barry McCormack stabbed his wife with a 22cm steak knife but said he did not intend to kill her, although he had thought about it at the time, he said. McCormack was acquitted of attempting to murder his wife, Alison Garton, but Justice Owen said he could still expect a lengthy prison term when he is sentenced. Although McCormack initially encouraged his wife to flirt with lecturer David Van Heurck "for a joke" he became suicidal and depressed when she became caught up in the online affair. She even made a tape recording of she and her husband making love before sending it to Heurck, according to a report from the Australian News Network. Justice Howe said the case was not about the appropriateness of their Internet activities or whether the cybersex affair had provoked McCormack to stab his wife. ®
