THEOLOGY STUDENT CONVICTED OF STABBING

AND MURDERING HUSBAND WITH KITCHEN KNIFE

 

SANTA ANA – A 29-year-old theology student was found guilty today of murdering her husband by stabbing him with a kitchen knife.  Jee Hyun Song, Anaheim, was convicted of murder with an enhancement for the personal use of a deadly weapon. She now faces a maximum of 16 years to life in prison and is scheduled to be sentenced on Friday, July 20, 2007 at 9:00 a.m. in Department C-44, Central Justice Center, Santa Ana.

 

Song and her 24-year-old husband, Dong Uk Kim, were both theology students at Bethesda Christian University in Anaheim, and arrived home at their apartment in Anaheim at approximately 7:30 p.m. on November 10, 2005.  Shortly thereafter, Song took a five inch kitchen knife and stabbed her husband once in the center of the chest, piercing his heart.  Instead of calling 9-1-1, she waited two hours before calling a female friend to come over to the house.  When the friend arrived and saw the dead body, she called the police.  Officers arrived at about 10:15 p.m. and found Song’s murdered husband on the living room floor. 

 

Senior Deputy District Attorney Howard Gundy of the Homicide Unit is prosecuting this case.
