WACO, Texas (AP) - A Central Texas woman has been sentenced to life in prison for her role in the 2008 stabbing death of her mother during an attempt to steal money.

Yalanda Renee Lind was convicted Friday night of capital murder and aggravated assault in the Waco attack that also left her mother’s boyfriend wounded.

Prosecutors did not seek execution so Lind received an automatic life prison term without parole over the death of Rebecca Leonard. Lind awaits sentencing for the stabbing of Jerry Patterson and could get 20 years in prison.

Prosecutors say Lind unlocked a door to let her ex-boyfriend enter the home and steal some cash.

Jeremy Lee Lowrey of Itasca (eye-TAS’-kuh) pleaded guilty in 2012 to murder and attempted capital murder in the stabbings. He’s serving life in prison.
