FREEHOLD, N.J. (AP) — A former third-grade teacher has pleaded guilty to murdering her former husband in what New Jersey prosecutors say was killing that also involved her parents.

Kathleen Dorsett told a judge Thursday she sent 42-year-old Stephen Moore to his death in the backyard, where her father was waiting to kill him, in 2010. Dorsett says she was changing her daughter's diaper when she heard a scream and she helped put his body in the trunk of a car.

Dorsett faces up to 58 years in prison.

Her father, Thomas, and her mother, Lesley, are due in court later Thursday.

Dorsett and her father were accused of killing Moore. Her mother was charged with conspiracy, accused of plotting behind bars with her daughter to have her former mother-in-law killed.
