PORTLAND,Ore. -- The son of a Corbett woman found guilty of killing and dismembering her husband lashed out at his mother in court at a sentencing Tuesday.
Hazelynn Stomps was found guilty on a count of murdering her husband, Gerald two years ago.She was originally charged with aggravated murder, abuse of a corpse, and filing a false police report.
Adam Stomps said he still didn't think anyone had the whole truth about what happened, as Hazelynn maintained her innocence.
You have not shown a shred of remorse, you are a monster, he said on the stand. And I hope while you spend the rest of your miserable life rotting in jail, then I hope you burn in hell.
Stomps sat quietly as the verdict was read. Her son was also in the courtroom. There is a mandatory 25 year sentence under Oregon guidelines.
Investigators found Gerald's burned remains back in February of 2009, on the couple's property in Corbett. The corpse had been cut up and burned.
Court documents indicated that he was killed some time between January 30, 2009 and February 6.
Hazelynn said her husband was chased down the creek banks, never to be seen again. Her attorneys argued that a stranger killed Jerry, possibly while trying to steal the couple's boat.
Last Friday morning, the jury listened to recordings of investigators questioning Hazelynn Stomps. At one point, a detective said to Stomps, Let's stop the madness. Jerry deserves better. Do what's right for the family, Lynn.
The lead detective in the case testified that he believes Stomps was definitely guilty of intentionally killing her husband and that she shot Jerry twice, including once to the head, at close range.
