PITTSBURG, Kan. (AP) - A southeast Kansas woman pleaded guilty to shooting her estranged husband to death two years ago at her father’s home.

Fifty-three-year-old Carla C. Moutz, of Pittsburg, was scheduled for trial this week in Crawford County District Court.

The Joplin Globe reports (http://bit.ly/1BEiVVU ) she instead pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and aggravated assault for shooting her husband in May 2013. Sentencing was scheduled for Feb. 27.

Prosectuors say Moutz shot her estranged husband, 49-year-old John Moutz, in Pittsburg, after an alcohol-fueled argument.
