Bail hearing for woman accused of killing baby's father
A Cranston woman charged with murdering the father of her 8-month-old is set to appear in court today.
Police say Misty Ospina was dropping her baby off at Richard Gibson’s apartment on the morning of Feb. 1 when the two got into an argument.
Ospina allegedly grabbed a kitchen knife and stabbed Gibson once, according to the police. Ospina told the police that during the argument, Gibson punched and choked her. The police said they didn’t see any marks on her.
Two calls were made to 911. The police say Gibson was pronounced dead at Memorial Hospital of Rhode Island.
Gibson’s friends and family in Pawtucket used his death to raise awareness of male victims of domestic violence.
Ospina has been held at the Adult Correctional Institutions since her arrest. She pleaded not guilty at an arraignment on March 4, according to Attorney General Spokesman Michael Healey.
