A Lackawanna County woman who admitted pushing her father down a flight of stairs is going to prison.
Courtney Joyce was sentenced Wednesday to between three and a-half and ten years behind bars.
Joyce pleaded guilty to pushing her dad at a home on Diamond Avenue in Scranton.
Just hours after the sentencing Wednesday, the Lackawanna County coroner confirms the victim, William Joyce, died around 6:30 PM.
His death has been ruled a homicide.
Prosecutors say they do not expect to file any new charges in connection with the case in Scranton.
