A furious husband caught his wife cheating after hearing her with another man through a baby monitor, a court heard.
Marek Fecko, 47, heard his wife’s infidelity over the baby monitor linked to his phone while at work.
Angered by his wife’s unfaithful actions, he sped home to confront his wife and her lover before threatening the unnamed man with a knife.
She had turned the baby monitor around in the marital bedroom but forgot to turn the sound off before Fecko heard what was happening.
Appearing at Carlisle Crown Court, Fecko admitted affray and possessing a knife in a public place with no reasonable excuse.
The court heard how the disgruntled husband had known about the affair that had been going on for five months but was waiting to catch his unfaithful wife in the act.
Prosecutor Tim Evans described how the Fecko had returned home and searched for the man before grabbing a knife and threatening the fleeing lover.
Prosecutor Evans said: “The unhappy result of that was that his wife commenced an affair. That affair was with a former work colleague of Mr Fecko.
“At the time of the offences, October 31, the affair had been going on for five and a half months.
“Mr Fecko and his wife had stayed together, even though he became aware of the affair from messages on his wife’s phone.”
He added: “In the marital bedroom, there was a baby monitor.
“It was connected by way of sound and vision to Mr Fecko’s phone. Within a short time of him leaving the house, his wife and (victim) were in the marital bedroom. She’d turned the baby monitor towards the wall.
“But she didn’t turn off the sound. Therefore the goings on in the marital bedroom were broadcast to Mr Fecko’s phone.”
