Now THIS is uncon­di­tional love - A man in Britain­has asked for a woman’s hand in marriage—not long after she stabbed him in the back with a 12-inch knife. And he did it in court! Tiffany Bail­lie has admit­ted to stab­bing her boyfriend while he was asleep in Decem­ber; the crime occurred near the first-year anniver­sary of the death of her infant and soon after a mis­car­riage. Her lawyer says she was con­sumed with grief and doesn’t know why she did it. The attack almost killed Gre­gory Todd, but after a few months in the hos­pi­tal he vis­ited Bail­lie in jail to tell her he for­gave her. When she appeared in court to admit to the stab­bing, Todd appeared in his best suit, car­ry­ing a ring. When her lawyer relayed the pro­posal to the court, Bail­lie burst into tears—but she hasn’t given an answer yet.

The fam­ily alerted police, who quickly cor­doned off the area and part of a nearby road as part of safety pre­cau­tions. The Explo­sives Ord­nance Dis­posal then car­ried out a con­trolled explosion.
