A woman has been jailed for three-and-a-half years for killing her boyfriend during a drunken row in Dublin.

46-year-old Norma Philips stabbed Stefan Neanu once in the chest at her home on Phibsboro Road, Dublin 7 in April 2015.

She was acquitted of his murder last month but found guilty of the lesser charge of manslaughter.

Outside court afterwards, Stefan’s aunt Gabi Corina Tapu explained why she is disappointed with the sentence handed down today.
