EVERETT — A woman with Everett ties pleaded guilty Wednesday to her role in an Oct. 17 home invasion that ended with one man dead and another wounded by gunfire.
Vanessa Marie Joy Grimmett, 19, pleaded guilty to first-degree robbery with a firearm. She originally was charged with first-degree murder for the violence, which happened at an apartment occupied by her aunt.
An addendum entered as part of the plea outlines expectations for Grimmett as the case moves forward, Snohomish County deputy prosecutor Katie Wetmore said.
Grimmett’s boyfriend, Edmond Clay Overton, 24, remains charged with murder and assault. Laura Bonita Johnson, 27, also is charged with murder, accused of driving the getaway car.
Darren Larson, 55, died at the scene after being shot in the back. Another man was shot in the head, but survived.
A witness who saw the robber run from the scene later told officers “the suspect’s style of walking” made him believe it was Overton.
Trials for the remaining defendants are scheduled for mid-March.
