Columbia woman pleads guilty in 2016 shooting death
COLUMBIA - A woman charged with voluntary manslaughter in a shooting death pleaded guilty on Monday.
Police arrested Monique Parra, 39, in November 2016, after they found the body of Kevin Robert Hollins. Court documents said Parra told police the morning of the shooting that she and Hollins had agreed to kill themselves. She then said she had "agreed to the suicide but had no intention of following through with it."
The court documents also show Parra gave different versions of the story to investigators.
Parra was sentenced on Monday to eight years in prison. She will serve also serve a concurrent three-year sentence for a drug possession charge, which she also pleaded guilty on Monday.
