Woman pleads guilty in Missouri man's shooting death
WAYNESVILLE (AP) — A woman has pleaded guilty in a south-central Missouri homicide.
Pulaski County Prosecuting Attorney Kevin Hillman said Lindsey DeBault, of St. James, pleaded guilty Thursday to second-degree murder and burglary for her role in the August 2016 death of Keith Bridwell in Big Piney.
KYTV reports as part of her plea bargain, DeBault agreed to testify against Michael Talley, of Mountain Home, Arkansas, who is charged with first-degree murder and three other charges in Bridwell's death.
A probable cause statement says Debault told detectives she and Talley went to Bridwell's home to rob him because he owed her money.
She admits stealing items from Bridwell after he was shot but says Talley shot the victim.
