CUMBERLAND, Md. (AP) — A former Frostburg State University student is starting a 14-year prison sentence for fatally stabbing another female student during an off-campus fight in 2011.

Shanee Liggins, 25, of Waldorf was sentenced Monday in Cumberland. The judge suspended six years of a 20-year sentence.

Liggins pleaded guilty in December to second-degree murder in the slaying of  Kortneigh McCoy, 19, of Baltimore.

McCoy died Nov. 6, 2011, of multiple stab wounds.

Witnesses told police that McCoy and her friends were thrown out of a party at Liggins’ house after an argument involving Liggins. Investigators say Liggins followed the group outside and stabbed McCoy.
