NEWMARKET, Ont. -- A 34-year-old Richmond Hill, Ont., woman is headed to prison for six years for killing a 45-year-old man in 2010.

Renee Laurence was convicted of manslaughter last month in the fatal stabbing of Gregory Goodeve of Richmond Hill on Feb. 26, 2010.

Laurence -- who had originally been charged with second-degree murder -- pleaded guilty to the lesser offence of manslaughter in Newmarket court.

York regional police found Goodeve dead of a stab wound to the chest after responding to a 911 call from a woman asking for help at a Richmond Hill home.
