Judge John McBain lost his cool during the sentencing of the then-31-year-old Camia Gamet as she constantly disrespected the courtroom and the family members of the victim.


Gamet was sentenced to be put in jail for the rest of her life without getting a chance of parole after the murder of her boyfriend in their apartment located in Jackson.

The Jackson County Circuit Judge McBain told Gamet that the murder of her boyfriend was among the worst "cold-blooded murders" he had ever seen.

Gamet's boyfriend, Marcel Hill, was stabbed to death on May 18, 2014, with a kitchen knife. During the hearing, Gamet was captured on camera rolling her eyes and snickering when one of Hill's aunts spoke to the court.

McBain could not tolerate Gamet's lack of remorse and took it out on her by yelling at her. Gamet had a history of violent behavior against Hill and had attacked him with a pan, a hammer, and even a floor lamp previously.

"You were relentless. You stabbed, you stabbed, you stabbed, you stabbed, you stabbed until he was dead. I agree with the family, I hope you die in prison as well. You know, if this was a death penalty state, you’d be getting the chair."

A jury convicted Gamet last month of first-degree murder. Gamet's defense had claimed that she believed that she stabbed an intruder in a dark room. Gamet had appealed that the slaying was in self-defense.


The jury and the judge did not buy Gamet's story. Gamet did not suffer any injuries during the fight.

Hill lost his life at the age of 38 after being stabbed 11 times by Gamet. Hill's family believed that justice was served after Gamet's sentencing and hoped that the case would make people aware that domestic violence comes in all forms.
