Posted at 12:41 PM, Aug 02, 2017

A former adult film star from North Tonawanda is now a free woman.

Back in 2013, Jennifer Marchant stabbed her boyfriend in the neck during a domestic dispute on Oliver Street.
24-year-old Ralph Stone died from his injuries.

A Niagara County jury convicted Marchant of first-degree manslaughter.

The Appellate Division of State Supreme Court voted 3-2 to overturn Marchant's conviction.  The court majority concluded that Marchant killed Stone in self-defense.
