Woman Accepts Plea Deal In Fatal Des Moines Stabblng
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) A 28-year-old woman has pleaded guilty to lesser charges for stabbing to death a man in Des Moines.
The Des Moines Register says Ashley Rogers is scheduled to be sentenced on Feb. 28. She's pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter, willful injury and assault. She'd been charged with first-degree murder for killing 22-year-old Frank Renfro Jr. and was charged for stabbing another man, William Rochon. Prosecutors lowered the charges in exchange for Rogers' pleas.
Renfro was found on a sidewalk on University Avenue around 3:30 a.m. on June 1. Police believe the incident began in a town home on nearby East University Avenue.
