HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) - A Hutchinson woman will be sentenced July 22 for killing her former lover and leaving her body in a rural Reno County creek bed.

Jamie Hatfield pleaded guilty Friday to second-degree intentional murder for the June 2015 strangulation death of 38-year-old Mary Ann Arnett. The plea agreement amended the original charge of premeditated first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder.

Prosecutors say Hatfield and Jonathan Perser-Wilson strangled Arnett at a Hutchinson home.

The Hutchinson News reports (https://bit.ly/1RVfnkv ) the two then stuffed Arnett’s body in a plastic tote and dumped it in a creek.

Police shot and killed Perser-Wilson after a confrontation 10 days after Arnett was killed that included Perser-Wilson throwing knives and other objects at officers.
