One of two sisters accused in killing of man enters Alford plea

From the Baltimore Sun:
A Laurel supermarket clerk accused, along with her sister, of killing a man who prosecutors say owed her money for drugs entered a plea to second-degree murder Tuesday that will get her between eight and 10 years in prison.

Patrice Rashah Dove, 22, cried as she entered an Alford plea before Anne Arundel County Circuit Court Judge William Mulford II, meaning she did not admit to killing Jamal Medina, 22, of Laurel on Dec. 21, 2009, at the Maryland City Plaza Shopping Center, but acknowledged that prosecutors had enough evidence against her for a conviction.

Dove's sister, Latisha Montia Adams, 23, fatally stabbed Medina, Anne Arundel County Assistant State's Attorney Brian Marsh told Mulford.
