A MAN was jailed for life yesterday after trying to murder his second wife — who survived by using skills she learned as a magician’s assistant.
Juan Garcia-Hernandez, 66, restrained Alison, 64, using cable ties but she was able to convince him she was more tightly bound than she was.
She freed a hand to defend herself as police stormed her home, meaning her husband missed a major neck artery.
Garcia-Hernandez had attacked her after their marriage broke down.
He was jailed for 14 years in 1993 for killing his first wife in Spain.
Sentencing, Judge Heather Lloyd said: “Any man who has killed or tried to kill two wives is obviously dangerous.”

Garcia-Hernandez, of Morecambe, Lancs, earlier admitted attempted murder and false imprisonment, Preston crown court was told.
Dr Alex Till told the court he suffers symptoms of delusion and there was a “strong link” between his condition and his behaviour towards his wife.
Experts recommended he undergo treatment in a secure psychiatric unit before being sent to prison to serve the remainder of his sentence.
