ERIE, Pa. — A northwestern Pennsylvania woman who punched a 63-year-old man who she claims made sexual advances toward her faces up to five years in prison for his death.

The Erie Times-News (https://bit.ly/1PkR8iH) says 45-year-old Sandra Gray pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter before an Erie County judge on Thursday.

Prosecutors say the Erie woman was drinking with 63-year-old Paris Hilton and his wife when she punched him in the side of the head Jan. 6.

Defense attorney Eric Hackwelder says the plea to the least serious of all homicide charges was appropriate because Gray didn’t mean to kill Hilton and was responding to an unwanted advance.

Gray told police she left the house after punching Hilton, but returned three hours later to find him foaming at the mouth.

She’ll be sentenced Dec. 14.
