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.
