FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) - A Fayetteville woman has pleaded guilty in the shooting death of a minister in Cumberland County more than three years ago.

The Fayetteville Observer reported (https://bit.ly/27rALcu) that 29-year-old Michele Eyvonne Butler pleaded guilty Friday morning to second-degree murder and first-degree kidnapping.

Prosecutors said 43-year-old Rev. Bobby Lamar Boose was killed during a struggle in the living room of her home in Fayetteville in November 2012.

Defense attorneys say a plea agreement with prosecutors means Butler could be sentenced to between 10 years and 13 years in prison. Her sentencing has not yet been scheduled.

Boose was an elder at New Beginnings Ministries in eastern Fayetteville.

Butler is the last of three co-defendants to plead guilty to similar charges. Butler’s co-defendants have not yet been sentenced.
