Odessa Woman Pleads Guilty in Connection With 2013 Death

ODESSA, TX (KWES) -

An Odessa woman has pleaded guilty to aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Vickie Simpson had been charged with murder in the 2013 death of Randy Brooks, Junior.

In a statement, District Attorney Bobby Bland says since she was not the direct cause of Brooks' death the aggravated assault charge is closer to her actual involvement.

The murder itself was a result of a fight over drugs.

Bryan Carbery pled guilty to the murder a month ago and was sentenced to 20 years in prison.

Simpson will spend the next 12 years behind bars.

We’re told Brooks' family approved of the plea.
