White had previously been found guilty of aggravated manslaughter in 1980 for stabbing a former boyfriend to death and was sentenced to 15 years in prison. 'I'm guilty,' White told Judge Robert Billmeier in a Mercer County court on Monday, according to The Trentonian. 'So what else can I do?'
In accepting the plea deal, White avoided facing a murder charge. She admitted she stabbed Clark in the chest with a seven-inch knife but said she did it after he struck her.White said she rekindled a relationship with Clark and was renting a room from his mother. She said that they had been arguing for months and that she stabbed him over $20 after he caught her going through his mother's purse. He died at a hospital three days later. In 1980 she stabbed her then-boyfriend, 39, with an eight-inch steak knife, according to the Times of Trenton.
