SEATTLE -- King County prosecutors say a 25-year-old woman has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in the April 2012 fatal stabbing of a man who gave her a ride to a fast-food restaurant.
The Seattle Times reported that prosecutors agreed to recommend that Karen Latham be given the low end of the standard sentencing range, slightly more than 10 years. She entered her plea Monday.
Sentencing is scheduled Aug. 16 in the death of Zerabruk Habtemiriam.
Police said the victim apparently stopped his car when Latham flagged him down on Aurora Avenue North and gave her a ride to the restaurant. Officers say he gave the woman $5 when she asked for money but refused to give her more -- and she stabbed him.
