A 35-year-old Georgia woman will spend the rest of her life behind bars for the brutal 2019 murder of the husband she stabbed more than 20 times. Fayette County Superior Court Judge Rhonda Kreuziger on Friday, sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole Alexandria Ginavia Mardell to kill 47 year olds John MardellProsecutors announced.

Fayette County jury found Mardell guilty many serious crimesincludes one count of malicious murder, felony murder and aggravated assault stemming from a violent assault in December 2019 that took place inside the couple’s home.

According to a press release from the Griffin Judgment District Attorney’s Office, Mardell and her husband on the afternoon of December 23, 2019 got into a fight that quickly turned violent. Prosecutors said that during the interaction, Mardell grabbed a knife and stabbed her husband “at least 22 times”. Shen then took a glass jar and used it to hit him on the head.

Prosecutors said in a press release: “After the violent assault, the defendant packed up and fled the home in the victim’s vehicle.

John Mardell earlier in the day filed a petition for a temporary protection order against his wife, based on Court records reviewed by Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The request for a protection order comes just weeks after John Mardell is reported to have filed for divorce from Alexandria Mardell.

“John Mardell’s death was horrible,” Assistant Senior District Attorney Dan Hiatt said, during Friday’s sentencing hearing, according to a press release. “His major organs were damaged, and he lay flat on the ground… dead.” (The ellipsis in the original)

Representatives from the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office investigated the murder and caught up with Mardell shortly after the attack and sent her to jail. She was arrested at the Fayette County Jail. She has remained in custody since her initial arrest.

At trial, Mardell’s defense argued that John Mardell assaulted Alexandria Mardell, and that Alexandria Mardell acted in self-defense when she repeatedly stabbed him. However, the jury rejected that argument.

Fayette County District Attorney Marie Broder released a statement on Friday in which she said John Mardell’s death was “avoidable, senseless and horribly violent.”

“My deepest thanks go to the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office investigators and my team for working so hard to bring justice to John,” she said. “ADA Hiatt told the Judge during sentencing that this case ‘needs to send a message to this county that violence like this will not be tolerated.’ The jury sent that message with its verdict, and the Judge sent that message along with her verdict.”

In addition to ADA Hiatt, Mardell’s case has also been heard by the Assistant District Attorney Rebecca Dehbozorgi.
