LEBANON, OH (FOX19) - A Warren County woman has been convicted of killing the father of her two children.
A jury found Shannon Smith, 22, guilty of voluntary manslaughter and tampering with evidence. She was acquitted of more serious murder charged. The verdict came down late Thursday night.
Smith claimed she stabbed her boyfriend, Robbie Takach, in self defense last January. But prosecutors argued she was calm and uninjured when police arrived and had cleaned off the knife.
She could get up to 15 years in prison when she's sentenced.
