NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Authorities say a 42-year-old New Orleans woman diagnosed as a paranoid schizophrenic admitted she stabbed her lover in the heart with a steak knife.
She said she did so in a haze of jealousy and rage.
The Advocate reports Yolanda Davis pleaded guilty in Orleans Parish Criminal District Court Monday to manslaughter.
She accepted a sentence of 20 years in prison without the possibility of parole.
Davis entered her plea in the December 2010 death of 49-year-old Renee Johnson.
