ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - A woman who posted bizarre, ranting YouTube videos before she was accused of randomly shooting another woman last year in a New York park has admitted to the slaying.

Thirty-two-year-old Holly Colino appeared Monday in a Rochester court where she admitted to all charges, but said she’s not responsible by reason of mental disease or defect. A judge accepted the plea.

Colino was charged with second-degree murder in the August 2017 slaying of 33-year-old Megan Dix. Authorities say Dix was sitting in her vehicle in a Brockport park while on her lunch break when Colino walked up and shot her in the head.

Colino was originally from the Rochester area but had recently moved back from Phoenix.

A judge ruled in March that her case could go to trial after receiving a “fitness to proceed” report from two court-appointed experts.
