Woman gets 30 years for stabbing death

DULUTH -- A Marquette, Mich., woman received the maximum guideline prison sentence Monday for fatally stabbing a Duluth woman in June.

Nicole Leone Revello, 30, pleaded guilty June 28 to intentional second-degree murder in the June 2 death of 46-year-old Lisa Kay Davis. Judge Eric Hylden gave Revello a 367-month sentence, more than 30 years, the maximum guideline sentence for someone with no prior criminal history.

Several members of Davis’ family were present at the sentencing. Two of them spoke about the loss of their daughter and mother before Hylden sentenced Revello.

“Nothing will bring my daughter back,” Davis’ mother, Marge Shoots, said. “I could hate Ms. Revello, but I don’t.”

Revello apologized and said the June 2 stabbing never would have happened if she wasn’t under the influence of synthetic drugs at the time.

Revello had agreed to a 367-month sentence when she pleaded guilty. She will serve at least two-thirds of the time in prison and the remainder on supervised release. She will receive credit for 107 days spent in jail.
