US police: Ex-judge is suspect in former wife's fatal stabbing

2018-11-20 09:43

Authorities say a former Cleveland-area judge convicted of beating his then-wife four years ago now is a suspect in her stabbing death over the weekend.

Court documents say the ex-judge was fleeing the scene of a homicide in which he was the suspect when he slammed his SUV into a police cruiser.

Former Cuyahoga County Judge Lance Mason was charged on Monday with felonious assault in the crash but he has not been charged in his former wife's death.

Police in Shaker Heights say Mason was taken into custody after they found Aisha Fraser dead at her home on Saturday.

Messages seeking comment were left with an attorney who has represented Mason in the past.

Mason spent nine months in prison after he pleaded guilty to beating his wife.
