DURHAM -- Crystal Mangum has been sentenced to at least 14 years in prison for killing her then-boyfriend Reginald Daye.

Mangum, 34, was convicted of second-degree murder in the death of the 46-year-old Daye. Mangum claimed she stabbed Daye in self defense; Daye died 10 days after being stabbed due to complications from the stab wound.

Superior Court Judge Paul Ridgeway sentenced Mangum to between 170 and 216 months behind bars after the twelve-person jury handed down the conviction. Judge Ridgeway then addressed the jury, "Now you can talk about this case with anyone you choose. Or you can choose not to talk about it at all. That is completely up to you. I do urge jurors, in the event that they choose to talk about a case publicly, they respect the privacy of their fellow jurors. It may be that your fellow jurors do not want their views shared publicly."

Mangum is more-famously known as the accuser in the 2006 Duke lacrosse case, where Mangum falsely accused three players of rape.
