Former Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Judge Lance Mason served nine months for beating his wife in 2014. Saturday he was arrested for the stabbing death of the same woman, Aisha Fraser Mason. She filed for divorce two days after the 2014 beating according to Newsweek, but the divorce was not yet final at the time of her death. She had been a teacher for 20 years and was currently working as a sixth-grade teacher at Woodbury Elementary School in Shaker Heights, Ohio.
Shaker Heights Police Commander John Cold explained how Saturday's events unfolded.
"At approximately 9:33 a.m., Shaker Heights Police responded to the 17000 block of Chagrin Blvd. for a domestic dispute. At that time, one of our officers was injured by the suspect and that suspect and the officer were taken for medical treatment. We have an ongoing investigation and we'll probably be here for quite some time."
