VAN WERT, Ohio (WANE) – A woman accused of shooting and killing her mother in November 2013 pleaded guilty to some of the charges against her on Monday.

Tamara Menke pleaded guilty to murder and felonious assault as part of a plea agreement. The deal would drop the attempted murder, aggravated burglary and burglary charges she was also facing.

Police found Menke’s mother and father, both with gunshot wounds, inside a home in November. Menke’s mother, Barbara Robinson, died on the way to the hospital. The father recovered.

Menke was arrested for the double-shooting the next day. She will be sentenced on May 16.
