A woman stabbed a man between his eyes with kitchen knife with so much force the blade penetrated his brain and caused him to lose an eye.

Brittany Stone, 28, got into a drunken argument at the victim's flat before launching the horror attack in July last year.

After the argument, the man walked out of the flat in Valley Road, Chilwell, Nottinghamshire Live reports.

But Stone followed him and attacked him with a knife which she grabbed from the kitchen, police said.

The horror attack caused the victim's brain to bleed and surgeons had to remove one of his eyes.

She was arrested after police arrived and officers found a knife nearby.

Detective Constable Peter Burrows, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This was a vicious attack which left the victim with life-changing injuries.

“The force of the blow to his face resulted in the knife penetrating into his brain. He had to have his eye removed and is due to be fitted with a false eye.

“I am pleased to see this result from court and that she has been handed a lengthy prison term for her serious crime.

“Nottinghamshire Police takes reports of knife crime extremely seriously and we acted quickly to arrest Stone in connection with this incident.

"Violence of this kind is unacceptable and I'd like to reassure people that we remain committed to driving down knife crime even further in our communities.

"We will continue to work tirelessly to remove dangerous weapons off our streets and take robust action against anyone believed to be involved in violent crime.”
