A Dallas man who killed a woman after she beat him at basketball was sentenced to 20 years in prison.
Cameron Hogg, 31, pleaded guilty on Thursday after accepting a plea deal offered by Dallas County prosecutors.
Prosecutors say Hogg shot Womack after she beat him in a pickup basketball game on Oct. 3, 2022.
Womack’s family said Asia (pictured) and Hogg were friends, but Hogg couldn’t accept losing to a masculine-identified woman in front of his family.
After the game, Hogg took his children and brother home, then returned to the park with a gun and shot Womack twice in the chest and 3 more times as she fell down.
Womack’s family addressed his sentencing on Thursday.
“It’s a slap in the face because it’s pretty much saying that Asia’s life was only worth 20 years. That’s basically what they’re saying,” Womack’s mother Andrea Womack told local Fox affiliate KDFW.
“I forgive him. But at the same time, I just want him to see the hurt. I just want him to see the hurt that’s on my face,” Andrea said. “You can’t imagine what’s in my heart. Just to be able to look at him and face him and get some closure.”
Asia Womack played basketball at James Madison High School in Dallas.
She was a member of Gospel Tabernacle Church and participated in the Youth Providence Ministry.
“This is so senseless,” Pastor John Delley told FOX 4 News in 2022. “You become embarrassed basically because a female beat you in basketball.”
“We’re taking it kind of hard because it was senseless,” Womack’s aunt, Juanita Smith, told KXAS-TV in 2022. “I just don’t understand why you kill somebody over a basketball game.”
