The woman convicted of killing a St. Albert realtor in 2006 is back in prison for robbing and threatening an Edmonton teen.

Lisa Ann McKay was arrested last June for forcing a 16-year-old girl at knifepoint to withdraw cash from ATMs in downtown Edmonton, according to an agreed statement of facts.

McKay picked the girl at random as she was walking to school. She threatened to stab the 16-year-old if she didn't hand over her cell phone and wallet.

After the second withdrawal attempt failed, McKay forced the teen to buy her cigarettes and beef jerky at a convenience store. She later used the teen's stolen debit card to buy liquor.

McKay was arrested a day after the robbery when Edmonton police caught her jaywalking.

In court Tuesday, McKay pleaded guilty to one count each of robbery, possession of a dangerous weapon and fraud under $5,000.

The 33-year-old was previously convicted of manslaughter in the death of St. Albert real estate agent William Edward Maloney in February 2006.

The two had an ongoing relationship for eight years when McKay was involved in the sex trade industry.

After a night of consuming alcohol, cocaine and sleeping pills, McKay stabbed 63-year-old Maloney to death with a kitchen knife in his Lacombe Park home.

She served nearly six and a half years in prison and was released in November 2012.

In an Edmonton courtroom Tuesday, McKay was sentenced to three years in prison. She has just over two years left to serve.
