COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - A Colorado woman charged in the gang-related executions of two Coronado High School students has pleaded guilty to lesser charges.

KRDO-TV reports Alexandra Romero pleaded guilty Monday to kidnapping. She had been charged with first-degree murder for the deaths of 16-year-old Natalie Partida and 15-year-old Derek Greer.

Authorities say the Colorado Springs teens were shot in the head at point-blank range in March 2017.

Authorities say Romero lured the teens under the false pretense of partying and buying drugs.

Four others were charged in the teens deaths with two people pleading guilty on related charges. As part of the plea deal, Romero will testify against the two remaining defendants.

Romero is scheduled to be sentenced in September.
