BREMERTON, Wash. (AP) – A woman accused of murder for stabbing her boyfriend to death during a 2019 snowstorm and then trying to cover up the scene has pleaded guilty to a reduced charge.
Brandie Elaine Williams is expected to be sentenced August 24 to 10 years in prison.
Williams was originally charged with second-degree murder for the death of David Joseph Krazel but pleaded guilty July 15 to second-degree manslaughter.
Her lawyers say Williams acted in self-defense and said they saw as critical errors by authorities.
Deputy Prosecutor Tim Lewis said the resolution was difficult to accept but reasonable.
