WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A Wichita man has been sentenced to more than 21 years in prison for stabbing his ex-girlfriend to death with her child nearby.

Yusef Samad, 35, received the sentence after pleading guilty last month to a reduced charge of voluntary manslaughter in the July 2009 death of Mechelle Reed. Prosecutors said he killed Reed at her home while her 12-year-old son was nearby.

Reed filed several requests for protection from abuse from Samad before her death.
