Omaima Nelson Marriage and murder Conviction

She met her husband William E. “Bill” Nelson, a 56-year-old pilot, in October 1991, when she was 23. Within days of the meeting, the couple married, but Omaima would later claim that during the couple’s month-long union, she suffered sexual abuse by her husband.

Omaima claimed that on 28 November 1991, Bill had sexually assaulted her in their Costa Mesa, California apartment. Following this, Omaima stabbed Bill with scissors, then began beating him with a clothes iron. After killing him, she began dismembering his body, and cooked his head, and boiled his hands to remove his fingerprints. She then mixed up his body parts with leftover turkey and disposed of him in a garbage disposal. Neighbors claim they heard the disposal unit running for hours after the time of Bill’s death.

Omaima was arrested on a suspicion of a murder charge on December 2, 1991, and her trial began almost exactly one year later on December 1, 1992. She was convicted of second-degree murder on January 12, 1993. She was sentenced to 27 years to life in prison.

Her case has been televised on the Investigation Discovery programs Happily Never After and Deadly Women and “Model Killers”, as well as an episode of Snapped.
