Man tried to kill wife 12 times while sleepwalking.

A man tried to kill his wife 12 times - while sleepwalking.

Li Chen attempted to strangle her three times, suffocate her twice, throw her out the window four times, beat her twice and set fire to her bed while she was in it.

His wife, Miang, said: "I told him to get medical help or he'd go to jail."

Doctors in Fuzhou, South China, have diagnosed a rare sleep disorder that was caused by stress.

"I hit you the head with a frying pan? Oh, I must have been sleepwalking...sorry honey".

No mens rea=you can get away with anything.
