FARGO, N.D. (AP) -- A North Dakota judge will decide whether a woman who admitted killing a pregnant neighbor so she and her boyfriend could keep the baby should merit a sentence other than life in prison without parole.
Brooke Crews pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit kidnapping and murder and lying to law officers in the August death of 22-year-old Savanna Greywind, of Fargo.
Crews did not have a plea deal with prosecutors, but hoped that admitting responsibility at a December hearing would work in her favor at sentencing Friday in Fargo.
Authorities haven't said how Greywind was killed. The baby was found alive in the apartment the 38-year-old Crews shared with her 32-year-old boyfriend, William Hoehn (HANE).
Hoehn is scheduled for trial in March.
