Blaine Woman Gets Six Years for Killing Boyfriend
ANOKA, Minn. (AP) — A Blaine woman who pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter in the fatal stabbing of her boyfriend has been sentenced to more than six years in prison.
The Star Tribune reports 31-year-old Arteisha Love was sentenced to 74 months in prison Tuesday. A judge dismissed two counts of second-degree murder.
Love pleaded guilty last month. She told police that during a fight last year, she stabbed her boyfriend, 29-year-old Gregory Stallone Stewart. She told police that he showed up at her apartment drunk and they got into a fight and he knocked out her front tooth.
Love's attorney, Catherine Trevino, said Love's relationship with Stewart was "toxic," and that he punched her and "she reacted."
