The mother’s anguished reaction when she sees the video of the murdered son

A tortured mother whose son is an army vet was murdered in 2018 collapsed in a Manhattan courtroom while video of the crime was being shown in an attempt to bail one of the alleged attackers.

Madeline Brame, whose 35-year-old son Hason Correa was stabbed to death in Harlem, clutched her chest as she saw her son walking around in the black-and-white surveillance footage.

“And you want to let him out,” Brame cried during the bail hearing for defendant Travis Stewart in the Manhattan Supreme Court on Friday.

The plaintive Brame began to burst into tears as court officials held her up and then escorted her outside to calm herself. She later said she felt her heart stop.

Toni Messina, an attorney for Stewart, presented the video to demonstrate that her client was “not involved” in the way the grand jury was presented.

Stewart is charged with murder, attempted murder, gang assault and assault. He has been in prison without bail since his arrest in 2018. This was the fourth hearing attempting to have him released.

He is one of four people charged in the October 19, 2018 attack on Correa and his father Wesley in the lobby of a Harlem apartment building.

The fatal encounter apparently happened after the father and son got into an argument with someone else in the building.

Correa, a married father of three who was touring in Afghanistan, was stabbed in the heart. His father was seriously injured.

Messina has tried to portray her client as a hard-working member of the community who is not at risk of absconding.

Assistant District Attorney Keith Savino said Stewart had gang affiliations and a previous violent arrest in which he pointed a gun at a victim.

Judge Ellen Biben sent Stewart back to prison without bail.

Biben had in 2019 drastically reduced deposit to $12,000 for another defendant in the case, Mary Saunders, and she has since been released.

A trial in the case has been postponed due to COVID-19 safety protocols.

The victim was also a married father of three.

Brame, 59, said she was glad Biben was keeping Stewart in jail but that the hearing was an emotional drain.

“It’s excruciating and excruciating to have to go through this over and over again,” she said after the hearing. “I’m ready to go to court and deal with it. four years. Enough is enough.”
