TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) - A 31-year-old woman who was charged with murder for stabbing and killing her boyfriend appeared in court for sentencing on Monday.

Sharonda Tuggle, 31, was sentenced to 15 years to life in prison for the murder of her boyfriend, Lawrence Stuart, 30.

On April 23, officers responded around 8:44 a.m. to a stabbing reported at a home in the 1100-block of Artis Place. When officers arrived, they found Stuart suffering from at least one stab wound.

Stuart was rushed to an area hospital where he later died. Police say Tuggle remained at the scene.

An autopsy report later showed that Stuart sustained stab wounds to the chest and right upper arm, as well as an incised wound to the forehead. The Lucas County Coroner’s Office said he died from the stab wound to the chest and ruled his death a homicide.

On Monday, April 25, a judge set Tuggle’s bond at $1 million at no percent. A preliminary hearing was set for May 2.
