CHESAPEAKE, Va. (AP) - A Chesapeake woman has pleaded guilty to killing her mother in 2013 inside their home.

Rachel Leigh Hutson is scheduled to be sentenced on Sept. 22 in Chesapeake Circuit Court.

The Virginian-Pilot (https://bit.ly/1Skt8w3 ) reports that the 20-year-old Hutson pleaded guilty on Monday to first-degree murder and a firearms charge.

Hutson was charged with fatally shooting her mother, 58-year-old Susan Lee Hutson, with a shotgun on Nov. 29, 2013.

Hutson’s father, Donald Hutson, testified last year at a preliminary hearing that she called him and told him she had shot her mother. He said she sent him a photo of her mother’s body.
