CROWN POINT, Ind. (AP) — An Indiana teenager accusing of stabbing her mother more than 60 times has been sentenced to 45 years in prison.
The Times reports that Reeves, who was 15 at the time of the slaying, was charged as an adult in Lake Superior Court.
Reeves cried as she told Judge Diane Boswell that she missed her mother and wished she hadn't killed her.
Boswell asked Deputy Lake County Prosecutor Maureen Koonce to explain why a plea agreement called for the minimum sentence.
Koonce said Reeves has no criminal history and DNA evidence in the case is complex.
