SALEM, N.J. (AP) - A New Jersey woman sentenced to serve 12 years in state prison for fatally stabbing her boyfriend with a steak knife says she still loves him.

NJ.com reports (https://bit.ly/1U3gIdo ) Tynesha Lewis was sentenced Friday in Salem for the March 2015 stabbing death of 27-year-old Brandon Spence.

Lewis must serve more than a decade of that before she can become eligible for parole.

A statement Lewis wrote says she apologizes for the “tragic accident” and never meant to stab Spence.

A trail of blood led from the outside steps of the third-floor Salem apartment to a nearby sidewalk and into the street where Spence fled to seek help. A passer-by took him to a hospital, where he eventually died.

Prosecutors had asked for the maximum 30-year sentence.
