A 48-year-old man from the Copenhagen suburbs was sentenced to six years in prison on Monday for trying to kill his wife with a frozen litre of milk.
In the early morning hours of March 29th, a 48-year-old man from the northern Copenhagen suburb of Lyngby took a frozen litre of milk out of the deep freezer, put it in a pillowcase and went in to his sleeping wife. 
 
He laid a sheet over her and then struck her in the head with the milk-laden pillowcase at least times. 
 
His wife screamed and woke up the couple's two sleeping boys. As the boys tried to get in to their parents' bedroom, the wife managed to fight off her husband's attacks and escape. 
 
According to BT, while in court on Monday the man claimed to have no recollection of the incident, which he said happened while he was sleepwalking. The judge and 12-person jury disagreed with that line of defence and the 48-year-old was sentenced to six years in prison for attempted murder, North Zealand Police wrote on Twitter.
