KANKAKEE, Ill. (AP) - A Kankakee woman has received a 28-year prison sentence for stabbing to death a former friend.

Kimberly Nowlan-McCue was convicted in October for the death of 29-year-old Elizabeth Jamison on New Year’s Day 2013. McCue contended she meant only to “confront” Jamison over a dispute McCue was having with her estranged husband

The 35-year-old McCue wept as she explained the circumstances of the stabbing of Jamison during a sentencing hearing Friday.

The Kankakee Daily Journal reports (https://bit.ly/OcbvCe ) Judge Clark Erickson said Monday that McCue showed no remorse during her lengthy statement. He noted that while McCue apologized, she maintained she was acting in self-defense.

Several of McCue’s relatives testified about her character. However Erickson said the sentence was “for the offense of first-degree murder,” not about her family relationships.
