Submitted by:Jim, Sacramento

ANSWER: Lan Anh Le was convicted of first-degree murder in the death of 26-year-old Monica Anne Anderson at Anderson's Citrus Heights apartment.

Le, 23, was sentenced in October 2012 to 25 years to life in prison and is incarcerated at the Central California Women's Facility in Chowchilla.

According to stories in The Bee, Le stabbed Anderson in what authorities described as a jealous rage. An autopsy disclosed that Anderson suffered 91 stab wounds in the attack.

The prosecutor and Le's public defender described the women as lovers who had broken up after Le abused Anderson.

They continued to see each other periodically, the attorneys said, and the night of the stabbing they had been drinking and snorting cocaine. The fatal fight reportedly started over a cell phone charger.
