MINEOLA, N.Y. (CBSNewYork/AP) — A jail guard pleaded guilty to murder and other charges Wednesday for killing her ex-girlfriend and uncle, and wounding her grandfather.
Kim Wolfe entered the plea to two counts of murder, one count of kidnapping, assault and a weapons charge. The judge said he will sentence her to 22 years to life in prison on Nov. 2; she could have gotten 50 years to life.
Stacie Williams, her former girlfriend and a 45-year-old nurse’s aide, was gunned down last year outside the Nassau University Medical Center in East Meadow on Long Island. The pair had met to discuss a possible reconciliation.
Wolfe then went to a relative’s home about three miles away in Hempstead. There, she killed her uncle, wounded her 88-year-old grandfather and took a 23-year-old niece hostage following a dispute over life insurance policies.
Wolfe began driving the niece toward Atlantic City, N.J., but made several phone calls back to the Hempstead home. During some of those calls, hostage negotiators persuaded her to return to the home, where she was arrested about 5:45 a.m. Her niece was released unharmed.
Wolfe was a 19-year veteran at the Nassau County jail. It is next to the medical center, where Williams worked the midnight shift supervising inmates.
