The Overland Park teen-ager who pleaded guilty to killing her mother was sentenced today to eight years and four months in prison.
Esmie Tseng, 17, declined to say anything during the brief hearing in Johnson County District Court. She had pleaded guilty in March to voluntary manslaughter.
The sentence imposed by Judge Brenda Cameron was recommended by both sides last month as part of a plea agreement.
Esmie’s mother, 55-year-old Shu Yi Zhang, died after being stabbed to death on Aug. 19.
