Watterson jailed for eight years

A Douglas woman has been handed an eight year jail term for manslaughter.

Arizona Devine Watterson was sentenced today at Douglas Courthouse.

Earlier this week, she was found guilty of the manslaughter of William 'Billy' Rogers but acquitted of his murder.

Mr Rogers died in March last year from a stab wound to the chest with a ceremonial dagger.

Watterson will serve an additional one year in prison for perverting the course of justice.
