GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — A woman who claimed she fatally stabbed an acquaintance because she was tired of being beaten has reached a plea deal in Brown County.
Forty-two-year-old Nawanna Polk pleaded guilty to reduced charges of second-degree intentional homicide Tuesday.
She was accused of stabbing and killing Kenneth Erving in October 2009, the city’s first homicide of the year.
According to police, Polk and Erving had a relationship in the past. When investigators interviewed Polk, she told them she was tired of being beaten, according to a criminal complaint.
WLUK-TV says Polk is scheduled to be sentenced on April 15.
