(New York Post) A Queens teen who stabbed her half-brother to death during a bloody fight over a cellphone pleaded guilty yesterday during an emotional courtroom appearance — and will get only five years for the crime.

Yocairis Diaz, 17, admitted that she plunged a knife into 20-year-old Frank Fortuna’s neck as they argued on Sept. 7 in their Woodhaven home.

Prosecutor Debra Pomodore said this was “the most just outcome” after meeting with Diaz, defense attorney Spiro Ferris and family members who had “asked for leniency.”
