OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A 44-year-old Omaha woman has been given eight to 10 years in prison for fatally stabbing her boyfriend during a drunken fight last year.

Online court records say Colleen Cannon was sentenced Wednesday in Douglas County District Court. In August a jury convicted Cannon of manslaughter and use of a weapon in the April 4, 2014, slaying of 43-year-old Darryel Fields.

A roommate testified that the couple had been drinking and arguing before Fields was stabbed.
