Man held on murder, molestation counts 

A San Francisco man faces one count of murder and four counts of alleged child molestation after he was found covered in blood and arrested Friday night for a stabbing death in Ingleside.

San Francisco Police arrested Umar Hudson, a 36-year-old registered sex offender, after he allegedly stabbed the mother of his daughter, 32-year-old Jernell Scott, 49 times on the 900 block of Ellsworth Street around 10 p.m. last Friday.

Since the end of February, Hudson was under investigation for allegedly molesting one of Scott’s two daughters from a previous relationship, according to the DA’s Office.

A motive for the killing is unclear, the DA’s Office said. Hudson is expected to be arraigned in the Hall of Justice today at 9 a.m.

Court records indicate a previous count of forcible rape, which would add to any sentence he might receive from the murder charge, let alone the allegations of child molestation, Chief Assistant District Attorney Russ Giuntini said.

"He’s essentially looking at the rest of his life in prison if he falls on either murder count," Giuntini said.

The four counts of alleged child molestation include two counts of forcible sexual assault with a child, one count of forcible oral copulation and one count of aggravated child abuse.

The children, all under 10 years of age, had been removed from Scott’s Ellsworth Street home at the end of February when one allegedly told her biological father about the abuse. Child Protective Services began investigating even as Hudson and Scott continued to have a relationship, the nature of which was "unclear," Giuntini said.
