A 40-year-old North Platte woman who was charged with manslaughter and drug violations in connection with the death of her sister has made a deal with prosecutors.
On Tuesday, Elizabeth Crawford pleaded guilty to two misdemeanors: attempted abuse of a vulnerable adult and possession of methamphetamine.
Crawford and Jeffery Manary originally were charged with manslaughter and distribution of methamphetamine in the Aug. 3 death of 45-year-old Esther Smith.
Crawford's sentencing is scheduled for June 4.
Lawyers for both sides Crawford will cooperate in the prosecution of Manary.
Police say Manary supplied the meth that Crawford injected into Smith.
Manary's next court hearing is set for April 16.
