Sentencing has been handed down to a 24-year old woman who killed a man in Bella Coola.

January Longe, who pleaded guilty to Manslaughter back in September, was sentenced to two years less a day in jail, minus one year and 7 months time served, as well as three years probation and a 10-year firearms prohibition.

Longe was originally charged with Second Degree Murder.

She was arrested following the death of a 25-year old man in November of 2016.

RCMP say they responded to a report of an altercation outside a local residence where they found an unconscious and unresponsive male.
