A west suburban woman was sentenced to 14 years in prison Wednesday for stabbing her husband to death with a kitchen knife in 2013.

Lisa Davis, 44, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder Wednesday and was sentenced to 14 years in prison by Judge Liam Brennan, according to a statement from the DuPage County state’s attorney’s office.

About 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 15, 2013, officers responded to a 911 call at the Davis’ home in the 500 block of West 61st Street in Westmont, authorities said.

They found 49-year-old David Davis bleeding from a stab wound to the right side of his abdomen, prosecutors said. He was treated at the scene and taken to a local hospital, where he died later that night.

Lisa Davis was arrested at the scene and has remained in custody on a $2 million bond, prosecutors said.

Prosecutors said that before the murder, the couple got into an argument, which culminated in Lisa stabbing her husband with a kitchen knife.

Davis is required to serve 50 percent of her sentence before she is be eligible for parole.
