MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - A woman charged in two knife attacks that left one person dead and another injured in Missoula has pleaded guilty.

The Missoulian reports (https://goo.gl/5tBKOu ) 32-year-old Sarah McKnight pleaded guilty Tuesday to five felonies, including deliberate homicide and kidnapping.

Prosecutors say she and co-defendant Scott Price intended to steal a car and money to buy drugs. On Dec. 21, investigators say McKnight waited in her car as Price stabbed a woman outside a grocery store. They then drove to a motel, where they found Lonette Keehner cleaning a room.

McKnight says Price pushed Keehner into the bathtub and robbed her at knifepoint. McKnight then waited outside and says she didn’t know Price had killed the woman until she saw a bloody knife.

Price also is facing five felonies in the case.
