To wit

The mother of a murdered man said, if she were the judge, she would sentence the woman accused of killing her son to therapy.

According to Wanda Holliday, her 23-year-old son, Rickey Nathaniel Holliday, "physically and psychologically abused" Shanica Lashunda Benson until she stabbed him.

Benson, now 26, was indicted by a grand jury on Wednesday on charges of murder and aggravated assault. According to the indictment, she stabbed him with the three-inch blade "of a certain kitchen knife during the course of a crime, to wit: murder."
