An Alexandria woman who was charged with stabbing her 47-year-old boyfriend, Delvaine Hecker, to death pleaded guilty to murder in the second degree last Thursday in Douglas County District Court.


During her plea, Darlene Williams, 45, stated that on November 28, 2007, she and Hecker were arguing before she stabbed him, according to Douglas County Attorney Chris Karpan.

Williams admitted that she used a knife to intentionally cut Hecker, but that she never meant to kill him.
