BATTLE CREEK, Mich. >> 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 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 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 Jan. 23 after he caught her slashing his tires.
