A Bluefield woman faces up to 15 years in prison after pleading guilty to voluntary manslaughter in the fatal shooting of another woman.
Police have said Kowaleski-Slagle and 42-year-old Elizabeth Slagle of Bluefield clashed in March 2013 in text messages and phone calls following an altercation between their children aboard a school bus.
Slagle was shot once with a .38-caliber handgun. A pink hand-held stun gun was found next to her body.
Kowaleski-Slagle is scheduled to be sentenced March 10.
