Michigan Judge Tells Convicted Killer 'I Hope You Die in Prison'

A Michigan judge became incensed during a sentencing hearing and told the defendant "I hope you die in prison." Judge John McBain was ruling in the case of 31-year-old Camia Gamet, when the defendant appeared to mock the victim's grieving family by rolling her eyes, causing the judge to lose his temper.
 
Gamet was convicted in March of fatally stabbing her boyfriend, Marcel Hill. According to WNEM in Lansing, McBain called it one of the worst cases he has ever seen. He told Gamet that she "gutted [Hill] like a fish.' 'If this was a death penalty state, you'd be getting the chair," said the judge.
 
McBain also threatened to tape Gamet's mouth shut, saying, "You're going to shut your mouth or I'm going to have some duct tape put on it." Gamet was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
 
This is not the first time the acrimonious adjudicator has made news for his candid outbursts. McBain once tackled and subdued a man who resisted being taken into custody and has been repeatedly accused of partiality and hostility in his courtroom.
