The woman charged with the stabbing death of her boyfriend pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter in Superior Court Tuesday.
According to a news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Loretta Hall accepted a plea deal and pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter, instead of going to trial for the murder of her long-time boyfriend, Kenneth Fogle, in their shared apartment on June 13.
According to the news release, Hall used a kitchen knife to stab Fogle multiple times, including a fatal stab to his heart. Hall hid the knife in a cat litter box inside the apartment, according to the release. Witnesses found Fogle, 54, slumped outside the apartment building in a “pool of blood.”
Hall, who will be sentenced Jan. 8, was out on supervised release stemming from a 2009 conviction for assault with significant bodily injury. Violating conditions of her 2009 release could add prison time to her sentence for the more recent conviction, according to the release.
