March 18, 2013|By Carrie Wells, The Baltimore Sun

A Frostburg State University student convicted of fatally stabbing another student in 2011 was sentenced Monday to 14 years in prison.

Shanee Liggins, at the time a 23-year-old senior business major, stabbed Kortneigh McCoy, 19, at an off-campus party. Witnesses said Liggins threatened another partygoer with a knife and McCoy stepped in to head off the dispute. Liggins pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in December.

Her 14-year prison sentence includes anger management treatment and a mental health evaluation, according to court records.
