Jose Garcia, 28, stabbed Fiona Garcia, 40, in the chest during a discussion about money being sent home to his family in the ­Dominican Republic.

The couple met in the ­Caribbean in August 2010 when she was on holiday with her mother, and began a relationship. Months later in February 2011, after Mrs Garcia had received a £43,000 redundancy payout, they married abroad, and he moved to her home in East Kilbride.

At the High Court in Glasgow yesterday, Judge Michael O'Grady, QC, told Garcia: "You have been convicted of an appalling and equally disturbing crime. The attack upon your wife was unprovoked, brutal and utterly callous."
