A Cheyenne County woman has pleaded guilty to lesser charges in connection to the death of a St. Francis man.

Leeanna Windell, 43, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in court Friday. She was charged with killing Brad Figgins, who was found dead inside his home last year.

The St. Francis Herald reports Windell struck Figgins in the head with a pipe, causing the fatal injury.

Figgins' death was the first homicide investigation in 20 years.

Windell will be sentenced at a later date.
