Lori Hummel must serve 85 percent of the sentence which was imposed Thursday in Gloucester County.

She pleaded guilty last month to fatally stabbing 54-year-old Thomas Carbin in the neck inside his Westville apartment in December 2010.

The now-41-year-old West Deptford woman was arrested after police noticed during an interview that she had blood on her boots. The blood turned out to be Carbin’s. At the time, police said Hummel hadn’t previously been a suspect.

A judge also sentenced Hummel Thursday to a concurrent four-year prison term for conspiracy to distribute heroin in the Salem County women’s detention center.
