Michelle Spirles stabbed Andre Biggs, 22, in the neck with a steak knife at a home on Evergreen Street. Biggs was taken to the hospital where he later died. Family members on both sides said the relationship between Spirles and Biggs was troublesome.
Spirles, a mother of twin 11 year-old girls, spoke at her sentencing today. She said she was wrongly convicted and that the system is putting away the wrong person.
Spirles was sentenced to 25 years state prison, with 5 years post-release supervision.
