A woman who domestically abused her boyfriend for over a year before stabbing him to death has been told she must serve a minimum of 18 years behind bars.
36-year-old Gary Morgan was found with a fatal stab wound to his chest at a property in Lavan Close, Everton, on 10 April.
Merseyside Police said Mr Morgan had been a victim of domestic abuse at the hands of his partner for over a year.
31-year-old Emma Walsh, also of Lavan Close, was told by a judge at Liverpool Crown Court that she must serve at least 18 years behind bars before being eligible for parole after being convicted of the murder of Gary Morgan.
After the sentencing, Detective Chief Inspector Mark Drew of Merseyside Police, said: "This is a very tragic case which led to the sad death of a much-loved man.
"Domestic abuse is a complex issue and can take many forms.
"It can be psychological, financial, sexual, emotional, and physical and can affect anyone regardless of sex, ethnicity, or religious belief."
Mr Morgan's family described him as "a caring lad who brightened everyone's day".
They said: "No-one should suffer domestic violence. Men should not be afraid to come forward. It is not a sign of weakness if is a sign of strength."
