Davalloo was previously convicted of attempting to stab Paul Christos, her ex-husband, in their Foxwood condominium on March 23, 2003.
A year later, she was sentenced to 25 years of incarceration at the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility for Women for the attack. Christos survived and testified during Davalloo's ongoing trial this year, in which she is representing herself.
