A young woman who pleaded guilty in relation to a fatal stabbing at the O’Chiese First Nation will be sentenced in July.

Kieron Beaverbones, who was 20, died after being stabbed in the upper chest early on the morning of April 7, 2014. Another victim was treated for injuries at Rocky Mountain House hospital.

Sherilyn Beaverbones, now 21, was charged with first degree murder, which was later changed to second degree murder.

This past January, she pleaded guilty to the lesser count of manslaughter.

Despite sharing the same last name the two Beaverbones are not closely related.

Sentencing is scheduled to take place in Red Deer Provincial Court on July 4.
