Ohio Teen Gets 10 Years In Facebook Stabbing
An 18-year-old central Ohio woman has been sentenced to 10 years in adult prison in the stabbing death of another teen last fall that began as an argument on Facebook.
Katherine Figueroa-DeJesus was 17 when she fatally stabbed 19-year-old Ganae Pleasant during a fistfight in October in Columbus.
A juvenile court judge ruled this week that rehabilitation in the juvenile system wouldn’t be appropriate. Another judge sentenced her to 10 years Thursday.
Figueroa-DeJesus pleaded guilty last week to voluntary manslaughter.
A prosecutor said she and another young woman got into an argument on Facebook that resulted in an agreement to meet for a fistfight. At that meeting, Figueroa-DeJesus fought with Pleasant instead, and stabbed her eight times.
