South Carolina woman sentenced to 38 years in prison for stabbing neighbors to death | News

A South Carolina woman has been sentenced to 38 years in prison for stabbing two of her neighbors to death.

According to prosecutors Paulette Sims, 31, was still about to poke and stick his finger into the wounds of one of her victims when police arrived and captured it on body camera footage. WYFF reports that the shocking crime took place in Allendale in March 2020.

A jury found Sims guilty of murder on Thursday (October 14).

The 14th Circuit Solicitor’s Office says the attack started when a roommate of the victims saw Sims lying on the sidewalk and suggested she go back to her apartment. Sims returned from his apartment with a knife and attacked the man.

Carolyn Cook44 and Bobby Heath Jr.57, tried to protect their friend before Heath was stabbed once in the heart while Cook was stabbed several times, investigators said.

The final blows of the attack still took place when police arrived and captured them on the dashboard and body cameras.

“Miss Sims attacked two neighbors without provocation and continued to assault one of her victims after she was probably already dead,” the prosecutor said. Julie Kate Keeney said according to WYFF. “This attack was so cheeky and so wild that it would be hard to believe it took place if some of it had not been captured on video.”
