ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - A Washtenaw County judge has sentenced a man to life in prison for stabbing a woman to death in front of her 4-year-old twin sons last year.

The Ann Arbor News reports (https://bit.ly/1qnH0ow ) Judge David Swartz told 36-year-old Stanley Harrison on Monday he would “happily” give him the mandatory sentence of life in prison. A jury found Harrison guilty of first-degree murder last month in the death of 23-year-old Shandar Turner in Superior Township.

Harrison said he never hurt Turner and offered his condolences to her parents. Her family members applauded the sentence.

Prosecutors say Harrison stabbed Turner multiple times in Sept. 2013, three days after Harrison was released from prison after a robbery conviction. Sheriff’s deputies found Turner bloodied on the front lawn. She died at an area hospital.
