Four years prison for fatal stabbing
April 12, 2014, 05:00 AM Bay City News Service

A woman who fatally stabbed her boyfriend and the father of her child in February 2012 in East Palo Alto was sentenced Friday to four years in state prison after agreeing to a plea deal earlier this year.

Natisha Anderson, 35, called police on Feb. 7, 2012 to report that she had “cut” her boyfriend during an argument at their home in the 1200 block of Camellia Drive in East Palo Alto.

According to prosecutors her boyfriend, 34-year-old Charles Perry, was found with a stab wound to his femoral artery and a steak knife was in the kitchen sink.

Perry later died at Stanford Medical Center.

Prosecutors said Anderson had claimed she had accidentally stabbed Perry during the argument. Perry is the father of her son, who was 4 years old at the time of the incident.

In January, Anderson agreed to plead no contest to voluntary manslaughter with a knife enhancement, according to prosecutors.

She was sentenced to a four-year term in state prison. She is expected to serve about a year and a half behind bars, with 913 days credit for her time in custody since her arrest, San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said.

Family members of both Anderson and Perry both spoke at the sentencing, according to Wagstaffe.

Anderson faced up to 12 years in state prison.
