CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -- A Cincinnati mom will spend the next 13 years behind bars for the murder of another mom.

Tinisha Jones, 25, pled guilty to the April murder of Jackie Evans at the Fay Apartments.

Judge Robert Winkler sentenced Jones to 13 years in prison Thursday on charges of voluntary manslaughter with gun specifications. It was the maximum sentence from Jones' plea deal.

Police say Jones shot Evans in front of her four children after a fight at a playground at the Fay Apartments. Jones' children were present, too.

The fight apparently started between two children, and erupted into a melee involving close to 75 people. But police never got any cooperation from witnesses.

Jones' attorney, Elizabeth Agar, said it was unfortunate event that affected the lives to two mothers.

Judge Winkler said he had received numerous letters from family and friends of Jackie Evans.

"Our entire family struggles everyday to get past the lumps in our throats, and to force a smile, remembering, thinking, surviving," said Evans' aunt, Stephanie Long.
