Woman Pleads Guilty in Stabbing Case

The New Richmond woman accused of stabbing her fiance to death in August of last year will not be going to trial.

Marian Kathryn Smith yesterday pleaded guilty to reckless homicide charges. Prosecutors originally charged her with first degree homicide. Smith told police that she and her fiance were arguing over a knife, when he grabbed at her, and the knife plunged into his gut. Her plea will mean less time behind bars. She’s to be sentenced in February.
