WETASKIWIN, Alta. - A central-Alberta woman who stabbed her common-law husband to death has been sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 10 years.

Phoebe Firingstoney, 31, of Hobbema was convicted of second-degree murder.

Jamie Lee Soosay died in hospital after he was stabbed several times in a house on the Samson Cree First Nation on New Year's Eve in 2011.

RCMP say the stabbing on the Samson First Nation reserve was the result of a family fight.

The couple's five young children were home at the time.
