TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey woman convicted of fatally stabbing an ex-boyfriend to death more than 30 years ago has admitted she did the same thing last year.

The Trentonian reports that 57-year-old Edna White, of Trenton, pleaded guilty Monday to aggravated manslaughter in the February 2014 slaying of former boyfriend Dwelle Clark. She faces up to 13 years in prison when she’s sentenced next month.

White initially was charged with murder but took a plea deal. She admitted that she stabbed Clark in the chest but says she did it after he struck her.

White was convicted of aggravated manslaughter in 1980 for stabbing a former boyfriend to death. She was sentenced to 15 years in prison.
