The man claimed he was sleepwalking when he struck his wife with the frozen 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.

The woman was arrested on Saturday and charged with theft and information fraud. There are ten victims in the case.

The police suspect the woman of having stolen from citizens whose homes she has visited as part of her work as a domestic worker in various places in Copenhagen.

“She has worked as a domestic helper and has been in people’s homes as an employee,” Bjarke Dalsgaard, deputy police inspector at Copenhagen police, said.

According to the police, the woman has stolen jewellery and cash on ten occasions. In addition, she has stolen debit cards in four cases and withdrawn money using them. The money that has been withdrawn alone adds up to a value of 52,000 kroner.

Copenhagen police received the first report of theft in the case at the beginning of 2022.

According to the police, the 31-year-old domestic helper admitted to one instance of crime (the theft of around 400 kroner) but pleaded not guilty regarding the remaining 13.
