A British woman was convicted and sentenced to 18 months for sinking her estranged husband's yacht at a marina in Brighton, England – on Valentine’s Day.

Mandy Fleming, 47, sank the 39-foot Princess Flybridge cruiser named Double Dragon after becoming angry with her ex for adding a new television and other items in the boat when he had told her he did not have any money.

Fleming drilled holes through the fiberglass hull to sink the vessel, valued at approximately $120,000.
