WEST COVINA (CBSLA.com) — A 27-year-old Pomona woman was sentenced Wednesday to 15 years to life in prison for stabbing her boyfriend to death two years ago, according to the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office.

Erica Artavia Campbell was convicted Feb. 11 of second-degree murder in connection to the killing of 24-year-old Markeon Taylor on April 2, 2012.

Campbell stabbed Taylor in the chest with a knife during a fight at her brother’s apartment in Pomona.

Taylor later died at a hospital.

The victim, who was from Tennessee, was living in Southern California to attend a murder trial of his 18-year-old brother, Marquis Leblanc.
