ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A Beclabito woman has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in a stabbing last year.

Federal prosecutors say 21-year-old Krisohn Adakai entered into a plea agreement Thursday.

They say she’s facing an [auth] 11-year sentence in federal prison followed by a term of supervised release to be determined by the court.

Adakai was arrested last July in the death of 26-year-old Crystal Tom.

According to a criminal complaint, the murder occurred at Adakai’s home in Beclabito on the Navajo Nation.

Authorities say Adakai and Tom got into a fight while drinking alcohol on July 28, 2012.

They say Adakai repeatedly punched and stabbed Tom, who died as a result of her injuries.

Prosecutors say Adakai disposed of the body in a remote area. She led authorities to the burial spot days later.
