GRAND HAVEN, Mich. (WOOD) — A woman was sentenced to prison time Tuesday in a fatal stabbing that occurred last year.

Heather McFerrin, of Standale, was sentenced to 15 to 25 years after pleading guilty on Jan. 11 to second-degree murder in the stabbing death of 26-year-old Spencer Daniel Rauch.

The incident occurred in April of last year at the Allendale Meadows Mobile Home Park in Allendale Township. Authorities said there was a gathering at the residence, and a fight broke out between the victim and McFerrin before Rauch was fatally stabbed in the chest once.
