Battle Creek - A woman accused of stabbing the father of R&B singer Mary J Blige during a domestic dispute in Michigan has been sentenced to jail.

The Battle Creek Enquirer reports that Cheryl White of Battle Creek was sentenced on Monday to a year in jail, but with 270 days already served.

She'll also serve five years of probation and pay more than $17 000 for Thomas Blige's nursing services.
White didn't address the court on Monday.

White in September pleaded no contest to assault with intent to commit great bodily harm. A no contest plea isn't an admission of guilt but is treated as such for sentencing.

Thomas Blige testified earlier that White attacked him with a knife on 23 January after he caught her slashing his tires.
