A Lakewood woman who murdered a neighbor and stabbed three of the victim's relatives has been sentenced to 36 years to life in prison.Virginia Krall, 26, was convicted of second degree murder in August 2009.

Jurors in her first trial deadlocked on whether she was sane or insane at the time of the crime. Last November, a second jury ruled she was sane.

Krall broke into the home and fatally stabbed 37-year-old Yolanda Meraz in June 2006.
