TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - A Topeka woman has been sentenced to more than seven years in prison in a deadly stabbing.

The Topeka Capital-Journal (https://bit.ly/2aG82ud ) reports that 36-year-old Kizzey Lynn Carter was sentenced Monday for voluntary manslaughter in the death of 33-year-old Siobohn McClelland, of Topeka.

Officers found McClelland suffering from a life-threatening stab wound in November when they responded to a loud disturbance at an apartment. She was taken to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Carter was arrested at the scene and originally charged with second-degree murder. The count later was reduced to voluntary manslaughter upon sudden quarrel or in the heat of passion.

Carter also was ordered to pay restitution $12,690 in the case.
