Woman Pleads Guilty to Second-Degree Murder of Boyfriend
VIRGINIA (AP) - A 21-year-old woman has pleaded guilty to luring her boyfriend to an apartment in the Minnesota town of Virginia, where he was fatally stabbed.
Janessa Peters of Eveleth entered the plea Tuesday to second-degree murder in St. Louis County District Court.
Peters' plot led to 28-year-old Harley Jacka's death on April 27, 2014. She said she no longer wanted to be the Virginia man's girlfriend and asked one of the men to kill him.
Three others have been charged with murder in connection with Jacka's death.
Prosecutors say 40-year-old Bartholamy Drift of Nett Lake agreed to her request. Drift has pleaded guilty.
The Nett Lake man was charged along with 43-year-old Anthony Isham of Duluth and 39-year-old John Isham of Virginia.
