SHARE Guilty plea in pregnant woman’s slaying

A woman charged in connection with the drug-related slaying of a pregnant woman has pleaded guilty to a pair of first-degree felony robbery charges.

The Salt Lake District Attorney's Office dismissed a murder charge in 3rd District Court on Monday in exchange for Kerri Dawn Armant's guilty pleas to robbery.

Police said Armant, 33, was one of five people involved in the motel room murder of Darla Woundedhead, who was pregnant at the time of her death. Her baby had to be delivered 13 weeks early. Investigators believe the murder was over a drug robbery.

Armant is scheduled to be sentenced on Feb. 5.
