INDIANAPOLIS — An Indianapolis man convicted of murder last month, was sentenced Wednesday to 63 years in prison.

37-year-old Karl Woodall was found guilty in the 2017 death of Stefanie Coulson, also 37.

Coulson was shot and stabbed to death at her Pleasant Run Parkway home on the city's east side.

She was found dead in her bedroom, shot multiple times and stabbed more than 30 times, according to the Marion County Prosecutor.

Witnesses told police Coulson and Woodall had argued over the use of his van, and then he shot her.

Woodall was arrested three days later.

He is also charged in the murder of James Sapp, an Indianapolis man who was found dead on the city's east side a few weeks before the Coulson murder.

His trial in that case is pending.
