HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — A Hagerstown woman who pleaded guilty to solicitation of murder in connection with her father’s death has been sentenced to six years in prison.

Danielle Black, who pleaded guilty on Tuesday, was 15 when her father, Billy Lee Black, was found fatally stabbed on the morning of Halloween 2008.

The Herald-Mail of Hagerstown reports that Black, 18, was convicted of solicitation to commit first-degree murder in 2009. The Maryland Court of Special Appeals overturned that conviction in August.

Alex Eger was sentenced to life in prison in Billy Lee Black’s death. He had been misled by Danielle Black into thinking her father had physically abused her.
