Kim Prunster, who stabbed his cheating partner up to 14 times in their Dongara home in 2017, has been sentenced to six years and nine months jail.

Prunster, 57, appeared in the WA Supreme Court today after a jury found him not guilty of attempted murder but guilty of grievous bodily harm with intent in March.

Justice Stephen Hall said he accepted Prunster was remorseful, but the attack was a willed act following Prunster’s “realisation that any attempt to recover the relationship would be futile”.

Prunster’s sentence was backdated to November 29, 2017, and he will be eligible for parole after having served four years and nine months.
