Umar Hudson, the man convicted of stabbing to death the mother of his young daughter, and raping two of her other children, was sentenced to 205 years to life in state prison.

A jury convicted Hudson 35, in November for killing Jernell Scott -- who he met in high school -- and raping Scott's other two daughters, one 13 and one who was 9

years old.

Prosecutors say Hudson's stress over the rapes is what ultimately led him to attack Scott.

"Because of the defendant's despicable actions, five children are now left without a mother. The sentence handed down reflects the horrific

and violent nature of the defendant's actions," said District Attorney

George Gascón. "San Francisco will be a safer place knowing this

individual will never have the opportunity to hurt Jernell Scott's

children ever again."

On Apr. 6, 2007, neighbors spotted a man standing over Scott, stabbing

her repeatedly. He went inside to change clothes, and when he came

outside, attempted to blend in with the crowd of people gathering

around Scott, who was naked and bleeding.

However, when police arrived, witnesses called Hudson out as the attacker. The cops later found bloody clothes in his backpack, and he was arrested on suspicion of murder.

DNA also connected Hudson to the sexual assaults of the two young girls, prosecutors said.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
