Security footage showed Wallace, who was pregnant with Mayo’s child at the time according to Leading Britain’s Conversation, following him with a kitchen knife. The pair eventually ended up in front of a local brewery. Wallace claimed Mayo drew a sharpened chopstick and threatened her with it, at which point she pulled the knife. The stab delivered to Mayo was so powerful that it broke through his ribcage cartilage and plunged into his heart. Witnesses said Mayo’s final words were a loving plea to Wallace, which she heartlessly ignored. Wallace initially failed to tell investigators about the chopstick in the aftermath of the murder, and no such Asian eating implement was ever found at the scene. In court she further downplayed the crime, claiming she did not aim to stab the man and only pulled the knife as a “deterrent,” the Telegraph reported. “It was horrible,” Wallace told the jury. “I did not mean any impact, I meant to gesture for him to get back.” Wallace’s defense crumbled in court and the jury returned a guilty verdict after less than half a day of deliberations. The judge was similarly unconvinced with Wallace’s story and raked her over the coals for the brutal crime. “In contrast to the people who tried to assist [Mayo], you did nothing and left the scene, allowing him to die and showing a complete lack of remorse that you had stabbed him in the chest,” Judge Rajeev Shetty said. While Wallace must spend at least 24 years of her sentence in prison, the judge noted that there is no guarantee she will be freed after that time. In addition to the murder conviction, Wallace was also found guilty of an offensive weapons charge. The judge ruled the disgraced climate activist must serve a four-year concurrent sentence for the crime. This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
