(Scroll down for video) A woman is asking a judge to keep her husband in jail for a long time after he killed her grandson.
The man of Tennessee, was found guilty of killing his wife’s grandson after he came home drunk and was upset that his steak dinner was not ready.
Harold Gray, 65, of Frayser, was convicted of reckless homicide for stabbing 31-year-old Anthony Morris, in front of the victim’s 6-year-old son.
Gray’s wife Mildred, said that for years, she tried to get help for her husband for his issues with drinking. “When he is drinking, he is just like a demon,” she said.
Gray told officers that Morris hit him in the face twice, before he retaliated by stabbing him multiple times.
However, Mildred said that there was no fight between her husband and grandson before the stabbing. Her husband was just an angry and drunk, and he took out his anger on her grandson.
Mildred said that her 6-year-old great grandson stood at his father’s side and refused to move as he bled to death.
According to the grandmother, the young boy became sick and threw up after watching the traumatic incident that took his father away from him.
Mildred wants her husband to “rot in jail,” for what he did.
Gray did not testify at his trial before he was found guilty of reckless homicide, but his defense attorney argued that he stabbed Morris in the groin area with no intent to kill.
A sentencing hearing was set for next month before Criminal Court Judge Paula Skahan.
