Kansas City woman sentenced for 1990 stabbing death
SMITHVILLE (AP) - A Kansas City woman has been sentenced to 23 years in prison in a deadly 1990 stabbing.
The Kansas City Star reports that Annette S. Davis was sentenced Friday for killing of 70-year-old Clifford McClanahan in Smithville. She was arrested in 2013 when the Clay County Sheriff's Department reopened the cold case. Fingerprints that weren't on file at the time of the killing linked her to the crime.
Prosecutors said Davis and McClanahan had been dating but that he slapped her when he caught her smoking crack. Davis stabbed McClanahan 12 times with a kitchen knife and left him to die.
