YAKIMA, Wash. (AP) -- A 36-year-old Yakima, Wash., woman accused of fatally stabbing her husband has pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter.

The Yakima Herald (http://is.gd/3zIJXY ) reports Sara George had been charged with second-degree murder in the 2009 death of her husband Rafael Oseguera at a downtown apartment building.

According to police, neighbors had heard the couple arguing for hours before the 33-year-old man stumbled into a hallway, clutching his chest.

George faces a sentence of between 6 1/2 and 8 1/2 years in prison after her Friday plea in Yakima County Superior Court. Sentencing was tentatively set for Dec. 20.
