Dad stabbed himself in head

A MAN killed himself by stabbing himself twice in the head after a row with his estranged wife.

The tragedy occurred in a house in Tullamore, Co Offaly, when Polish national Grzegorz Guzik (30) slashed his wife's friend Bartlomiej Juwa (30) before turning the knife on himself.

His wife Ewa (33) is said to be "deeply traumatised" today after witnessing the horror scene.

The incident happened shortly before 7am yesterday at the house where Mr Guzik had previously lived with his wife Ewa and three-year-old son.

He is believed to have become estranged from his wife recently, and when she called to the house with another Polish man the altercation took place.
