Wed., 1:50 pm: Warren woman pleads in stabbing case

A Warren woman accused of stabbing her brother has accepted a plea deal offered by the prosecution.

Kristina Burgess, 27, agreed to plead guilty to a first-degree misdemeanor. She is now free on bond and will undergo a pre-sentence investigation.

Burgess had been claiming self-defense in the stabbing of her 26-year-old brother, Patrick White Jr. in the chest late July 8 or early July 9 outside the Glenwood Street N.E. home they both lived in with her children.

She faced up to eight years on the second-degree felony charge of felonious assault on which she was indicted.
