A pensioner who ran over her husband then drove off has avoided jail after a court heard they are still in love.

Her husband had ­multiple fractures after she ran him down on a rural road in May.

Judge Gary Burrell told Southampton crown court their 50-year marriage was “marred by violence, mainly by him”.

In 2004 he ­reportedly kicked her head and once allegedly tried to choke her.

Mrs Stickland, of Langley, Hants, admitted GBH but her husband said he could not bear it if she was jailed.

Solicitor Janet Brownlow said: “They still love each other deeply and understand the reasons behind the sentence.”

The ­mum-of-three must now live with her son.

Moved to the Big Tomata in the nineties from San Francisco. No Suburbs for me with its single colored houses and lawns and the excitement of pulling out my trash can once a week. I'm a CityFella , a part time New Yorker. I'm happiest in the Center City where people the streets and people are alive. I'm still waiting to buy a 34th floor condo somewhere downtown/Midtown with a nightclub. "Hurry I'm old" My politics are somewhere in the middle with a needle that constantly moves. I'm too liberal to be a Republican and too conservative to be a Democrat. Everything interests me . I've come to love Sacratomato, Its a nice town in cheap sensible shoes .
