KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A former Kansas City university student has admitted to sending more than 100 emails to an instructor threatening mutilation, torture and murder.

Former University of Missouri-Kansas City student Kenna Haight, 27, pleaded guilty to cyberstalking on Thursday, The Kansas City Star reported (http://bit.ly/Vr7fCw ). Haight was arrested in December at her home in Norfolk, Virginia. Authorities said she sent the emails from September 2012 until her arrest even after being served orders to stop.

Haight sent an Oct. 1 email to the instructor that “homicidal fantasies” about the educator were keeping her up at night. The next day she wrote the instructor again, after her class schedule had been changed.

“My life went down the drain when you changed your schedule and I changed my schedule to take your . exam,” her email said, according to court records.

A prosecutor said Haight faces up to five years in prison.

She was recently found competent to stand trial after she told U.S. District Judge Greg Kays that she has suffered from mental health issues.
