The woman who shot and killed her friend outside a south Bakersfield house party has been sentenced to 21 years in prison.

Krystal Wandick says she was upset after Albert King grabbed her by the throat during an argument, but Deputy District Attorney Richard Choi thinks alcohol played a role in last year’s shooting on Gordon Street.

Wandick drove away after the fight then returned an hour later and confronted King with a handgun.
