Stone and his wife were driving one night while the wife was verbally abusing him by telling him how he made her sick just by looking at him and how his sons weren’t his, but rather the product of adultery commited by his former wife. She also threatened him by saying she had gone to the police to say that she had been abused by Stone. What happened next was described by Stone as a “wooshing” sensation and had blacked out for what seemed like a minute. When he woke up, he found his wife slumped over her seat, bloodied from the 47 stab wounds. He pleaded guilty but under the insane automatism condition yet he was sentenced to 7 years in prison even after trying to appeal to the BC Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court of Canada.
