Remember the Woman in the Duke Lacrosse Rape Story?

DURHAM, N.C. — The woman who falsely accused three Duke lacrosse players of rape was convicted of second-degree murder Friday in the stabbing death of her boyfriend.
The jury deliberated for about six hours over two days before reaching its verdict in the trial of 34-year-old Crystal Mangum, who was sentenced to 14 to 18 years in prison.
Killed was 46-year-old Reginald Daye, who was stabbed on April 3, 2011. He died of complications 10 days later.
Mangum claimed the stabbing was a case of self-defense, saying Daye was beating her in a jealous rage when she grabbed a knife and “poked him in the side.”
Assistant District Attorney Charlene Franks told the jurors during closing arguments that the evidence did not back up Mangum’s story.
