Judge to convicted killer: 'I hope you die in prison'

(CNN) — "I hope you die in prison!"

That's what a Michigan judge told a woman who was sentenced for murder.

He didn't mince words when he sentenced Camia Gamet to life in prison without parole in her boyfriend's brutal murder.

According to the Associated Press, a jury convicted Gamet last month of first-degree murder. Gamet has said she believed she was fighting an intruder in a darkened room and that the slaying was in self-defense.

Marcel Hill was beaten and stabbed to death May 18 with a filet knife.

The 38-year-old Hill was stabbed 11 times. Hill told police in March 2013 that Gamet had struck him in the head with a hammer.

Judge John McBain said he'd never seen a defendant so rude and who showed so little remorse. He exploded when he handed down her sentence saying:

"You end up in, probably some kind of domestic. Ultimately hit him in the head so hard with a pan that you actually cave in the front of his skull. And then you stabbed him no less than 12 times. You know what? I'm the only one in the courtroom who knew what kind of knife that was. And it was a big ol' long fillet knife. Because I used it to fillet pike and musky and salmon. And I'll tell you, you gutted him like a fish in the apartment too. You were relentless. You stabbed, you stabbed, you stabbed, you stabbed, you stabbed until he was dead. you didn't think he was an intruder. You know, maybe one stab wound, ok. Maybe that's self-defense. You know, you put in 11 more to make sure he was good and dead. So I hope, 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 gettin' the chair. You have 42 days to appeal my sentence."
