A Toledo man was sentenced to 10 years in prison after he was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter today.

James Day, 67, pleaded no contest to the charge in Judge Bates Lucas County Common Pleas courtroom.

Back in mid January, Neighbors found Joan Watson's body with multiple stab wounds around 9:30 a.m. Sunday in her apartment in the 3100 block of Sylvania Avenue. Police say she had been assaulted and stabbed. One officer at the scene used the word "mutilated."

Court documents say Day told police he and Watson spent the night together in her apartment smoking crack cocaine and drinking. Documents also say Day had blood on his hands and clothes when he was taken into custody.
