Woman gets 16 years to life in husband's slaying

August 25, 2007|From Times Wire Reports

A 29-year-old theology student who claimed that she accidentally stabbed her husband in the heart during a clumsy hug was sentenced Friday to 16 years to life in prison.

Jee Hyun Song and her husband, Dong Uk Kim, 24, were students at Anaheim's Bethesda Christian University when she fatally stabbed him in the chest with a 5-inch kitchen knife in their Anaheim apartment on Nov. 10, 2005.

During the trial, she claimed that Kim had essentially stabbed himself by unexpectedly spinning her around from behind for a hug while she was holding the knife and cooking noodles.

Prosecutors said Song waited two hours before calling a girlfriend, who contacted police.
