Son Kyle, 21, heard IT specialist Martin yell “she’s stabbed me” and found his mum smeared with his father’s blood.

He called his sister Charley, 23, over the PS4’s message system, saying: “Call 999, mum has stabbed dad and he is dead please, please.”

Mrs Welsh had been drinking a cocktail of beer, wine and spirits throughout the evening when she lodged a blade 15cm-deep in her husband’s lung and aorta.

Welsh denied murder, saying she could not remember knifing Martin at their home in Hendon, North West London.

The couple had a long history of violence fuelled by drugs and alcohol, the Old Bailey heard.

Welsh rocked back and forth in the dock throughout the hearing and quietly sobbed as the verdicts were announced.

She was remanded in custody for sentencing on Thursday.
