In 2013, Camia Gamet, age 31, and Marcel Hill, age 38, were living together in Jackson, Michigan. They were an odd couple because they had very different and opposite personalities.

Marcel was described as friendly and child-like. He worked at a fast-food joint and only had a high school education. He suffered from some disabilities including mental illness, cognitive impairment, and physical disability.

On the other hand, Camia did not suffer from disabilities but she was known to be on drugs and had a violent and abusive nature. She had a difficult childhood and had lived in 13 different foster homes. She had also been arrested for domestic violence for assaulting a previous boyfriend. So it was interesting that she ended up with Marcel who had a much nicer temperament than Camia.

Due to their very different personalities, Camia and Marcel’s relationship was fraught with difficulties. Camia would often target Marcel.

In one incident, she stabbed him with a knife and then stitched up his wound by herself. Marcel never reported the incident to authorities. In another incident, Camia assaulted Marcel and punctured his lung. Again Marcel never reported her to the authorities. Yet again, in a third incident, Camia hit Marcel in the head with a hammer. The authorities charged her with assault and domestic violence but the case was dismissed when Marcel refused to press charges against her. This would end up in grave consequences for Marcel.

On May 18, 2013, Camia murdered Marcel in a fit of rage. A neighbor called 911 after hearing sounds of fighting at Camia and Marcel’s home. When police officers arrived, they found the home in complete disarray.

The furniture was smashed, there was a broken floor lamp, a bloody knife, and a frying pan covered in blood. The officers also found Camia covered in Marcel’s blood and slurring her speech. Meanwhile, Marcel had been bludgeoned and stabbed to death. He had been stabbed 11 times and his torso was cut open with a knife. Camia had no injuries.
