GREENSBURG, Pa. (AP) - A western Pennsylvania woman has pleaded guilty to helping a co-worker write threatening messages to youth football league officials last year.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review (https://bit.ly/2egB6wG ) reports that 35-year-old Kimberly Ross pleaded guilty Tuesday in Westmoreland County Court to making terroristic threats, conspiracy and harassment.

Authorities said Ross and 52-year-old Joseph Loughner wrote threatening messages in September 2015 to Mt. Pleasant Area Junior Football League officials in response to changes made by the league.

In mid-October of that year, authorities said 40 bullets, some bearing the names of league officials, were found in the parking lot of Norvelt’s Hurst Field. The league then canceled the remaining four games of the season.

Loughner pleaded guilty to his role in the letters but has repeatedly denied any involvement with the bullets.
