Who is Keshia Golden? Why did she kill her BF Calvin Sidney? Explained

Who is Keshia Golden

Keshia Golden, 33, has been charged with first-degree murder in the death of her boyfriend Calvin Sidney. Let’s see who is Keshia Golden and why did she kill her boyfriend Calvin Sidney in detail.

Who is Keshia Golden?

Keshia Golden is a 33-year-old pregnant woman from Austin, Chicago. She is eight months pregnant and she lived with her boyfriend, Calvin Sidney, who is 30 years old. Prosecutors claim that Keshia Golden fatally killed the father of her unborn child, Calvin in an altercation at her Austin residence hours after her baby shower last week.

Keshia Golden was ordered detained in jail on Friday in place of a $2 million bond, with her next hearing before a judge scheduled for less than two weeks before her due date, according to her court-appointed counsel.

Prosecutors claimed at the bail hearing that the Oct. 22 stabbing was not the first time an argument between Golden and her boyfriend, Calvin Sidney, had gone violent. Police said they were summoned to Golden’s house five times between June and September in response to domestic violence situations.

The expectant mother said Sidney choked, punched, slapped, or pushed her four times in all. According to court documents and police reports, Golden filed an order of protection against Sidney in July, alleging that he hit her in the face.

When Golden cut Sidney’s neck so severely that he had to go to the hospital in August, Sidney decided not to file charges, according to the prosecution.

“It was just toxic with those two,” said Golden’s mother, Tarsha Ellis. “But they loved each other. If he could raise up right now, they wouldn’t have no case because he would never want charges against her.”

What happened between them?

Golden, Sidney, and other family members went to the baby shower Saturday evening and then came back to her apartment in the 5100 block of West Augusta.

Keshia Golden, 33, and Sidney, 30, got into a fight at 3 a.m. on Sunday. Prosecutors claim that Golden and Sidney quarreled over who would get to use the microwave to reheat leftovers.

Sidney allegedly “pushed her down on the counter” after Golden allegedly knocked a dish out of her hands. Golden was pulled from Sidney by her uncle, and Sidney went to a bedroom.

Prosecutors claim that Golden was pushed by the uncle while carrying a knife, entered the room, stabbed Sidney in the leg, dropped the knife, and then fled the apartment. Later, Sidney passed away at Mount Sinai Hospital after receiving a femoral artery injury.

Why did Keshia Golden stab, Sidney?

Golden stabbed her boyfriend in order to protect herself, said her mother Ellis. She added that her daughter does not do it intentionally.

When speaking with Golden from behind bars, Golden’s mother claimed that her daughter was upset about Sidney’s passing.

Ellis stated that “She didn’t intend to kill anyone.” “She’s upset about She didn’t know you could kill someone by stabbing them in the leg. She just wanted him to leave because he was acting out, and she was worried about hurting the baby. And he wouldn’t go.”

Golden went back to her residence hours after the stabbing, unaware that Sidney had passed away, and was detained by police there. Prosecutors claim Golden told officers she had stabbed Sidney.

Golden was treated for wounds sustained in the struggle with Sidney for four days before her bond hearing on Friday, according to her lawyer Julie Koehler, deputy chief of the Cook County public defender’s murder task force.

Holding Golden, who works as a cashier at a Marshall’s store, on $2 million bail – which would require her to post a $200,000 bond to secure her release – is the same as setting a no-bond order, Koehler said.

She claimed that in spite of a state rule passed in 2019 mandating that pregnant women not be imprisoned prior to trial unless they are regarded to pose a threat to the public, prosecutors urged that Golden be held without bail.

It is cruel to the mother and the child, according to Koehler, to force Keshia to give birth in jail and then take her newborn away right away.

“The law of Illinois is broken by this cruel decision. Keshia acted in self-defense, according to all available evidence. The only person she’s ever shown any violence toward was the man that was beating her.”

The state’s attorney’s office in Cook County declined to comment. Golden is being held at Cermak Hospital inside the Cook County Jail complex, stated “ Matt Walberg, spokesman for Sheriff Thomas Dart.
