Sentencing Friday in November Stabbing Death


DES MOINES, Iowa — A Des Moines woman will be sentenced Friday after being convicted of second degree murder.

Twenty-two-year-old Miranda Metcalf was originally charged with first degree murder in the stabbing death of 28-year-old Juan Carlos Chavarria. A jury convicted her of the lesser crime in July.

Chavarria was stabbed to death at an apartment building on Des Moines’ south side last November.
