Woman got tattoo of ex-boyfriend's death day

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - A New Jersey woman who acknowledged killing her ex-boyfriend then getting a tattoo of his name and date of death has been sentenced to 17 years in prison.

Forty-year-old Charlotte Carmen was sentenced Friday in a Trenton courtroom to 17 years in state prison, with five years of probation. NJ.com reports Carmen pleaded guilty to aggravated manslaughter earlier this year in the death of 33-year-old Paris France Way.

Authorities say Carman and Way got into an argument in 2015, which led to Carmen stabbing him in the chest. She then took $180 from his pocket and used part of the stolen funds to pay for a tattoo that reads "RIP PARIS," alongside Way's birth and death dates.
