JUNEAU, Wis. (AP) - A Milwaukee woman has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for fatally stabbing a man she alleged had sexually assaulted her.

Thirty-one-year-old Kriscilla McHenry also was sentenced Thursday to 20 years of extended supervision and ordered to pay more than $14,000 in restitution.

McHenry pleaded no contest in July to a felony charge of second-degree intentional homicide. An autopsy determined Michael Soeller was stabbed 38 times in his motel room in Randolph in August 2014.

According to the complaint, McHenry told detectives she stabbed Soeller after he sexually assaulted her.

During sentencing, Dodge County District Attorney Kurt Klomberg characterized McHenry as “highly manipulative,” according to a news release.

Soeller’s car was found at an impound lot in Milwaukee the day after a landlord found Soeller dead in his apartment.
