A Michigan judge was forced to lose his cool after a convicted killer snickered and interrupted the victim’s family member who was speaking to the court.
After Camia Gamet, 31, cut off Marcel Hill’s aunt, saying “Is that it?,” Judge John McBain lashed out to set her straight.
“You’re going to shut your mouth or I’m going to have some duct tape put on it,” he said. “You gutted him like a fish… you were relentless. You stabbed. You stabbed. You stabbed. You stabbed. You stabbed until he was dead,” he said. “I agree with the family, I hope you die in prison as well.”
Gamet was convicted of brutally murdering Hill two years ago. The two were boyfriend and girlfriend. Prosecutors said she stabbed Hill 11 times. According to Judge McBain, it was one of the worst cold-blooded murders he’s ever seen.
Her defense, however, maintained she thought she was defending herself from an unknown attacker. It was revealed later that she had a history of domestic violence and even stabbed and hit the 38-year-old Hill with a hammer in another incident.
When McBain handed down Gamet’s life sentence, the court room erupted with applause.
And about that blow-up from McBain? Well, he’s totally defending himself.
“I don’t think I anything I did was wrong,” he told MLive.com. “Sometimes, I think a judge needs a little fire in the right kind of cases.”
