ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

An Albany woman was indicted for both malice murder and felony murder, in the stabbing death of her husband.  

Prosecutors said that she fought first responders trying to save his life.

34-year-old Kamesha Jackson was indicted for two counts of murder, aggravated assault, cruelty to children and obstruction.

Prosecutors said that Jackson, around 4 a.m. on April 16, stabbed her husband, 39-year-old Charles Porter, in the thigh with a knife and he died a short time later.

Prosecutors said that both the couple's teenage children witnessed the attack and that when paramedics and police arrived Jackson fought them.

"She did not follow the orders of the officer at the scene as they were trying to respond, and investigate.  And secondly she actually also engaged in offering and doing violence to one or more of the officers at the scene," said Dougherty D.A. Greg Edwards.

Investigators said Jackson had just returned from a nightclub and fought her longtime husband as he slept on the couch in the front of the home.
