PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) - A Pensacola woman has pleaded no contest to manslaughter for her part in a drug-related fatal shooting.

The Pensacola News Journal (https://goo.gl/wgPyLU ) reports that 24-year-old Iesha Robinson had been facing a first-degree felony murder charge and a possible mandatory life sentence before pleading to the lesser charge Wednesday. She now faces a maximum of 10 years in prison at her Jan. 13 sentencing.

Prosecutors say Robinson loaned two men her car in August 2015 and sent them to collect a drug debt. Authorities say the men, Jesse Square and Jeremiah Farrish, forced their way into a home, and Eugenio Lopez-Acosta was shot in the chest three times.

The newspaper reports that Farrish has entered a plea to first-degree murder and awaits sentencing. Square has pleaded not guilty and is awaiting trial.
