OGDEN, Utah (AP) -- A judge sentenced a woman yesterday to a 15-years-to-life prison term for a murder he'd hoped to sentence as manslaughter.

2nd District Judge Ernie Jones said it was sad, but he pronounced the sentence for Monika Dilmaghanian after the defense and the prosecution sparred over whether he had the authority to reduce the murder case to manslaughter. The first calls for 15 years to life while the other brings one to 15 years.

Dilmaghanian pleaded guilty to the murder charge last month in the April 6 stabbing death of her boyfriend, Nathan Harris.

Harris died from a single 3-inch-deep stab wound to the heart.
