LIBERTY, Mo. (AP) - A Kansas City, Missouri, woman has been ordered to spend 15 years in prison for the stabbing death last year of her boyfriend.

The Kansas City Star (https://bit.ly/29ZWcOp ) reports that 49-year-old Emma Hyson was sentenced Friday in Clay County. She pleaded guilty last month to voluntary manslaughter. She had been charged with second-degree murder and armed criminal action.

Authorities say Hyson reported that she stabbed 52-year-old Kenneth Wilcock in the neck in their apartment after the two had been arguing. Hyson says she passed out for several hours and called police after waking up and finding Wilcock dead.
