Today a woman accused of beating her boyfriend to death will be in a Jackson County court room. We will have a camera in the courtroom for this story.
30-year old Camia Gamet was in tears last month when she was charged with open murder in the death of her boyfriend Marcel Hill. According to prosecutors Gamet hit Hill on the head many times with a blunt object until he died. His body was found the the next morning, on May 9th, in the apartment the two shared on Lansing Avenue in Jackson.
Prosecutors say she had a history of beating Hill and had been arrested back in March and charged with felonious assault. The charges were dropped just days before Hill was murdered, after he refused to press charges.
Gamet could face life in prison if she is convicted on the charges, but it is still early in this case. Today is just a preliminary examination, where a judge could decide if there is enough evidence for a trial.
