Sources tell Scene that Aisha Fraser Mason, the ex-wife of former county common pleas judge and current city of Cleveland employee Lance Mason, was found dead today after a domestic incident involving Mason.
He'd previously been convicted of and imprisoned on domestic violence charges after he viciously beat her in 2014 in front of their children. She filed for divorce two days later and needed reconstructive facial surgery. Cops found 2,500 rounds of ammunition and semi-automatic weapons in Mason's home after he was arrested for that assault.
Mayor Frank Jackson last year hired Mason despite all that.
Jackson insisted Mason was simply the best qualified applicant.
