An Augusta woman charged with murder in her boyfriend’s stabbing death pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of voluntary manslaughter.

Superior Court Judge Carl C. Brown Jr. accepted the plea negotiation reached for Catherine Gibson. On Nov. 14, he sentenced her to 12 years in prison followed by eight years on probation.

Gibson, 27, was arrested after stabbing 40-year-old Albert D. Hawkins at the home they shared on Jan. 7.
