   NORFOLK , Va . – Shana Christine Winborne , a 34 - year - old Norfolk woman , was sentenced in Norfolk Circuit Court on Friday , April 22 , 2022 , to 17 years in prison for stabbing and killing her husband , then - 39 - year - old Dwan Winborne , while she was out of jail on bond for stabbing him two months earlier .
   The night of Oct . 11 , 2020 , Mrs . Winborne spent some time at the hospital with her and Mr . Winborne’s newborn baby who was ill . After asking hospital staff if she could somehow prevent Mr . Winborne from visiting their infant and being told the hospital could do no such thing without a court order , Mrs . Winborne was heard by a nurse telling someone on the phone that , “I will kill him , ” referencing Mr . Winborne . Mrs . Winborne was also heard telling the individual to “stay on the phone and , if he says anything else , I will stab or shoot him . ”
   Mr . and Mrs . Winborne had been drinking and arguing throughout the day . During one of their arguments earlier in the day , Mrs . Winborne called Norfolk Police to the couple’s apartment . However , according to Mrs . Winborne’s then - 11 - year - old daughter , the pair had left the apartment before officers could arrive .
   After Mrs . Winborne’s return from the hospital , in the early morning hours of Oct . 12 , 2020 , another argument ensued between Mr . and Mrs . Winborne . During this argument in their bedroom , Mrs . Winborne got out of bed and retrieved a knife from the kitchen . She then returned to the bedroom and stabbed Mr . Winborne on the left side of his chest , piercing the left ventricle of his heart and mortally wounding him .
   Around 2:30 a . m . , Norfolk Police responded to another call from Mrs . Winborne saying her husband had stabbed himself . When officers arrived at the apartment on the 300 block of South Military Highway , the front door was open , a trail of blood was seen from the bedroom to the living room , Mr . Winborne was laying on the living room floor covered in blood and Mrs . Winborne was holding pressure to his chest with towels while Mrs . Winborne’s daughter stood at her stepfather’s feet . Mr . Winborne was transported to Sentara Leigh Memorial Hospital , where he was later pronounced dead .
   Mrs . Winborne initially told detectives that Mr . Winborne had stabbed himself but , after being advised of her legal rights , she admitted to stabbing her husband , putting the knife in his hand , and ultimately moving the weapon back to the bedroom .
   Mrs . Winborne’s daughter later told detectives that she had been sleeping in her bedroom during her parents’ early - morning argument but was awakened by what sounded like water splashing . It was when she looked outside of her bedroom door that she realized the sound was that of blood from her stepfather’s wound . She also told police that her mother had stabbed her stepfather in a separate incident just months before and that she had heard her mother say before that her stepfather “wouldn’t make it to 40 . ”
   Mrs . Winborne had previously been arrested for stabbing Mr . Winborne on Aug . 2 , 2020 , and was out of jail on bond at the time of the fatal stabbing .
   Mrs . Winborne pleaded guilty to second - degree murder on Jan . 20 , 2022 . On Friday , Judge Jerrauld C . Jones sentenced Mrs . Winborne to a total of 25 years with 8 years suspended , leaving an active prison sentence of 17 years . Ms . Winborne’s suspended sentence is conditioned upon 10 years of uniform good behavior as well as indeterminant supervised probation upon her release .
   “My heart goes out to the family of Dwan Winborne , who have lost a son and a father , ” said Commonwealth’s Attorney Ramin Fatehi , “I particularly grieve for the baby who will grow up never knowing her father and for the young girl who witnessed this terrible crime and the other violence that preceded it . No child should have to see what she has seen . ”
   Senior Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney Michelle L . Newkirk led the prosecution of Ms . Winborne’s case on behalf of the Commonwealth . Please contact Nia Tariq at 757 - 620 - 5454 for more information .
   If you have or someone you love has fallen victim to crime , including but not limited to domestic violence , resources are available at the Norfolk Family Justice Center .
