LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - A 27-year-old Lawrence woman has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder in the death of her boyfriend.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports (https://bit.ly/P4k03l ) Marci D. Cully pleaded not guilty Friday in the Christmas 2013 stabbing death of 33-year-old Wayne Francisco. Cully’s next court appearance is scheduled for May 6.

Cully’s lawyer, Courtney Henderson, says the defense and prosecution are awaiting results of a criminal history report and testing of additional evidence.

During a preliminary hearing last month, investigators testified that Cully told them she stabbed Francisco twice after he threatened her and threw a chair at her and tried to swing it again.
