A Long Island woman could be sentenced to 25 years to life in prison after her conviction for killing a homecoming queen in 1996.      

A lawyer for Kalila Taylor tells Newsday that an appeal is planned following Tuesday's murder conviction.      

Curtisha Morning was stabbed at least 94 times during the Feb. 29, 1996 attack near Riverhead High School.

Prosecutors say the 17-year-old victim had just started dating the father of the defendant's child.      

The case was a retrial. Taylor's first conviction was thrown out on appeal because of faulty jury instructions.      

Her sentencing is scheduled for Aug. 22.
