After she admitted to stabbing her sister to death in the shower with a steak knife a Georgia woman was handed life imprisonment.
Chakaya Brittney Folborg, 24, pleaded guilty in court to the murder of her adopted sister, Kourtney Chanel Dyches, in their Mableton home on Feb. 20, 2012, law enforcement said.
Both sisters were 21 years old at the time and had been squabbling.
Officer Kim Isaza told the jury that they had not been living in the same house until approximately a month before the fatal slaying.
Family members could hear the victim’s screams piercing the closed bathroom door the night of the murder.
"This victim was a vibrant young lady with the rest of her life ahead of her," Sherwin Figueroa, assistant district attorney, said. "The defendant, without any provocation, took a knife from the kitchen some two hours before the killing and waited until the victim was in the shower before viciously stabbing her at least six times."
Dyches, who was had been adopted as an infant, died before cops could get to the crime scene, responding police officers said.
Folborg, will be eligible for parole after serving 30 years behind bars. She has been imprisoned since her arrest.
