Columbus Woman Pleads Guilty in Stabbing Death

By  | 

A Nebraska woman has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in the stabbing death of a man.

Attorney General Jon Bruning said in a news release Friday that 32-year-old Kimberly Henderson, of Columbus, entered the plea in connection to the death last May of 51-year-old Steven Jorgensen, also from Columbus. Authorities say he was stabbed to death during a home robbery.

Henderson is one of three people facing charges in the case. Twenty-seven-year-old Quentin Critser, of Lincoln, entered the same guilty plea in December and agreed to testify against his co-defendants. Thirty-one-year-old Eric Henry, of Columbus, is still scheduled to stand trial in April. He has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder and other charges.
