WOMAN CHANGES PLEA MINUTES BEFORE HER MURDER TRIAL IS TO START

WOMAN CHANGES PLEA MINUTES BEFORE HER MURDER TRIAL IS TO START

After three days of jury selection, a Yucca Valley woman pleaded guilty to murder in a Joshua Tree courtroom Monday afternoon. Against her lawyer’s advice, and just as her trial was set to begin, Diana Jordan, 38, changed her plea to guilty in the murder of Lauren McLane, 22, of Yucca Valley. In December 2010, McLane left her job at the Dollar Tree store but never arrived home. Jordan and her co-defendant, Heidi McDermott, 32—who accepted a plea bargain of voluntary manslaughter last week —lured McLane to Jordan’s home where they killed her because Jordan and McLane were seeing the same man. McLane’s body was found in Jordan’s garage inside a plastic container along with bloody sledgehammers and a wrench. Jordan’s sentencing is set for Friday. McDermott’s sentencing is scheduled for December 6.

    are you serious? a young woman is brutally murdered and your saying those responsible shouldn’t be punished because “nobodies perfect”? That’s the excuse you use when you forget someones birthday, not when you take someones life. That comment is by far the stupidest comment I have ever read on here. Those women are exactly where they belong, and they deserve every year in prison they serve. It’s one thing to be a supportive friend despite the horrible things people do, but to leave a comment excusing their behavior with “nobodies perfect” is wrong.
