WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - A Sedgwick County judge has denied a change of plea motion for Charity Blackmon. Blackmon is charged with first-degree murder and possession of a firearm by a felon in the death of 54-year-old Merril Rebus.

On Thursday, Blackmon said she wanted to withdraw her guilty plea to a second-degree murder charge. She argued that she was pressured to take the plea and didn’t have enough time to make a decision. She also said that she wanted to present new evidence.

A judge reviewed her arguments and denied Blackmon’s motion to withdraw her plea.
