An Ohio Judge who punched his wife 20 times in 2014, slammed her head against the dashboard of his car, and broke her orbital bone in front of their kids, spent only 9 months in jail before he was released. Now, he has allegedly stabbed the woman to death.
Former Ohio judge Lance Mason was forced from the bench and served prison time for viciously assaulting his then-wife Aisha Fraser. He was released early from jail because he wrote an apology letter to his wife which she accepted.
But, on Saturday morning Nov 17th, she was found stabbed to death and Mason has been taken into custody.
The incident occurred at Aisha Fraser's suburban Cleveland home on Saturday. Fraser's boyfriend told WKYC that Fraser owned the home and rented it out to Mason's sister. Fraser was reportedly dropping off the couple's children when she was killed by Mason, who was allegedly waiting for her at the home.
In the 911 call, a woman who identifies herself as Mason’s sister tells dispatch that Mason admitted to attacking his ex-wife.
"He said he stabbed her ... and she's dead," she can be heard saying on the call.
Fraser's body was found in the driveway, and sources tell WKYC that Mason apparently attempted suicide after her death.
Court documents say Mason drove his ex-wife's Audi SUV into a police cruiser while attempting to flee the scene, causing serious injuries to an officer's lower legs and ribs. He and Mason were both treated at a local hospital for their injuries.
Mason fled on foot and was later arrested. He has been charged with felonious assault for the events that followed his ex-wife's death, but charges related to Fraser's death have not been filed.
