FORT DODGE, Iowa (AP) — A woman has pleaded guilty in connection to the hatchet slaying of a Fort Dodge man last year.
Holly Ekstrom submitted the plea Wednesday on aggravated misdemeanors of accessory after the fact and operating a motor vehicle without owner's consent.
Ekstrom said she saw Ronald Dilley kill 22-year-old Steven Fisher in July 2013. She admitted to driving Dilley away from the scene and disposing of evidence in the case.
Dilley is serving 50 years in prison after pleading guilty to second-degree murder in the case. He earlier admitted to killing Fisher with a hatchet.
Ekstrom is scheduled to be sentenced Monday.
