Woman Pleads Guilty in Highway Shooting

KSAL StaffOctober 24, 2014

A Lawrence woman has pleaded guilty to arranging the shooting of her ex-boyfriend on a highway south of Lawrence.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports that 22-year-old Brittany Nicole Smith pleaded guilty Friday to a conspiracy charge. The victim, 24-year-old Skylar Workman, survived after being shot May 26 on Highway 59.

Testimony at a preliminary hearing in July indicated that Smith persuaded 25-year-old Edward Joseph Parker to shoot Workman.

Sentencing was scheduled for Jan. 9.

Parker pleaded not guilty in July to attempted first-degree murder. His trial is scheduled for Dec. 1.
