LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - A woman has admitted that she killed a Lawrence woman who had given her a place to live.

Angelica Kulp pleaded guilty Thursday to second-degree murder and aggravated burglary in a plea agreement that dropped a first-degree murder charge.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports (https://bit.ly/288eKQv ) Kulp killed 56-year-old Christine Kaplan in July 2014. Police found dozens of stab wounds on Kaplan’s body when it was found in her home.

Prosecutor Eve Kemple says Kaplan was known for helping those in need and had given Kulp a place to stay. But Kaplan eventually asked Kulp to leave and said she was afraid of her.

Several days after Kaplan’s body was found, Kulp was arrested in Topeka after an unrelated burglary of an acquaintance’s house.

Sentencing is scheduled for July 1.
