HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) -- A 24-year-old woman faces six years in prison after pleading guilty to charges from a June standoff with Hutchinson police.
Kayla Salyer Rodriguez will be sentenced Feb. 1 after pleading guilty Monday to aggravated kidnapping and two counts of aggravated assault.
As part of her plea, Rodriguez admitted she threatened two women with a handgun on June 1 and kidnapped one of the women.
The Hutchinson News reports (http://bit.ly/XJfmVD ) police were in a standoff for more than six hours at a Hutchinson apartment after receiving a report that Rodriguez had forced another woman into the apartment with a gun. No one was injured.
Prosecutors say 27-year-old Jennifer Heckel was killed by three men who went to the wrong home while searching for Rodriguez to rob her of drugs and money.
