BETHEL- A Bethel woman will serve 22 years in prison for killing her boyfriend.
   
Brenda Evans was sentenced earlier this month for the death of Charles Beaver. She earlier this year pleaded guilty to second-degree murder.
   
An affidavit attained by the Bethel radio station says Beaver died after suffering what appeared to be multiple stab wounds on Feb. 22, 2012, at the home the two shared. The document says it appears someone tried to start a fire in the house.
   
She says she went out that night to get him a cigarette and found him on the floor when she returned. However, police say witnesses claimed the two had been fighting, and he was trying to evict her from the home.
