Teen pleads guilty to stabbing at New Hampshire park

The Associated Press

CONCORD - A 19-year-old New Hampshire woman accused of stabbing another woman in a park last year has pleaded guilty to attempted murder.

The Concord Monitor reports the plea allows Samantha Heath, of Barnstead, to testify against her former boyfriend, who is charged with coming up with a plan to kill the woman and then rob a string of gas stations and flee to Florida.

Police said 18-year-old Andrea Halvorsen was stabbed 16 times at Bear Brook State Park in Allenstown in January 2014. Police say the two women knew each other.

Heath, who is scheduled to be sentenced Feb. 3, is expected to testify against Kyle Buffum, who has been charged with conspiracy to commit first-degree murder and criminal solicitation.
