Written by

Sydney Powell, the 23 year-old Akron woman accused of fatally stabbing her mother 3 years ago has been found guilty on multiple counts including murder, felonious assault, and tampering with evidence.

Prosecutors say that Sydney stabbed her mother, 50-year-old Brenda Powell, with a steak knife nearly 30 times and also beat her with a cast iron skillet. During testimony, experts gave differing opinions on whether Powell was sane at the time of the murder with the defendant having entered a plea of not guilty by reason of insanity. The Beacon Journal reports that during closing arguments prosecutors said Powell killed her mother to hide the fact that she’d been kicked out of Mount Union College. 

The jury at Summit County Common Pleas Court  deliberated a little over 9 hours before reaching their verdict. Powell will be sentenced on October 28th.
