He took off and guests called police, who took statements from the wife and witnesses.
Officers then went out looking for Sanchez while his wife stayed behind at the reception.
Police didnít find him, but he came back to the reception just after midnight and stabbed his wife in the face with a broken beer bottle.
Guests were able to restrain him until the cops returned to take him away. The woman was taken to hospital with serious wounds to her back, chest and mouth.
The Crown and defence have asked for a nine-year prison sentence.
