      Nampa woman pleads guilty to killing boyfriend

      NAMPA, Idaho (AP) - A 34-year-old Nampa woman has pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter for the October stabbing death of her boyfriend during an argument.

      The Idaho Press-Tribune reports

      Susana Cordoba Quijano (kee-HAH'-noh) also pleaded guilty to use of a deadly weapon in the Oct. 12 death of Santiago Delgato Pineda. He died of a single stab wound to the heart.

      Quijano was arrested the next day. She was initially charged with second-degree murder.

      Court records say Quijano told investigators she stabbed Pineda because she suspected he was seeing another woman.

      Sentencing is set for April 22 before District Judge Juneal Kerrick.
