SCRANTON -- A high-school student who admitted to stabbing another teen to death after an argument on Facebook has been sentenced to prison.

Cathleen Boyer, 17, was sentenced Wednesday to seven to 20 years in prison.

Police say Boyer stabbed Kayla VanWert, 18, last year during a fight on McKenna Court in Scranton. VanWert died at the hospital.

Boyer pleaded guilty to third-degree murder in July.
