Zim Woman Sentenced 25 years for stabbing her 3 year old son and his father in the US


A Zimbabwean Woman resident in Georgia, United States is to spend the next 25 years of her life behind bars for stabbing her 3-year-old son and the child’s dad.
 28-year-old Nomatter Gava-Hudson, said before the Circuit Court gave its verdict she felt she would be escaping her challenges by killing the victims and herself.
Judge Roger Clark, issued the sentence after Gava-Hudson pleaded guilty to the crime she committed back in October 2015.
According to Sun Herald, the infant was slipping away when the police found him and his father following an emergency call.
Gava-Hudson during the trial had asked for the Judge to temper justice with mercy, saying she had been under financial pressure as a result of demands of her education, troubled marriage and child custody issue.
She claimed said that she visited Gulfport to try and convince her estranged husband to allow her take the child with her to Georgia, where she was in school.
Because of the protective order issued by the court against her she asked him to meet her at the park, where the incidence happened.
While there, Gava-Hudson was reported to have pulled one of two hidden kitchen knives stick it to his throat and threatened to kill.
“The victim’s father struggled with the defendant over the knife and was eventually able to gain control of it and throw it on the ground,” the court heard.
“The father then began tending to the cuts that he received during the struggle. At this point, the defendant grabbed the child victim and removed a second knife she concealed in the child’s blanket.”
Gava-Hudson stabbed her son in the sternum, the abdomen and the back before her husband was able to stop her. The child suffered a lacerated liver.
After her husband intervened, Gava-Hudson stabbed herself in the stomach.
“The interrogation by Gulfport police solved this crime,” Assistant District Attorney Mitch Owen, who prosecuted the case, said in the news release. 
“Had they not pressed the defendant for the truth, she would have continued to blame the child’s father. It was because of their due diligence that the defendant eventually admitted to committing the crime.”
