Local Teen Sentenced In Stabbing Death

Aug 24, 2012

A Columbus teen who pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter earlier this month was sentenced Thursday to ten years in adult prison for a fatal stabbing.

18-year-old Katherine Figueroa-DeJesus stabbed 19-year-old Ganae Pleasant during a fight at an East Side home last fall. She was 17 at the time, but a judge in January moved the case to adult court after police said she confessed.
