WC mom pleads guilty to manslaughter in death of daughter
The Westchester mother accused of killing her 18-year-old daughter in a fit of rage pleaded guilty to manslaughter this week.
Stacey Pagli told investigators that back in Feb. 2010, she and her daughter, Marissa, got into some sort of argument in their on-campus home at Manhattanville College.
Pagli says that she ended up strangling her daughter after the argument because she felt that Marissa, a freshman at the college, had been disrespectful.
She is expected to be sentenced to 20 years in prison sometime in April. Pagli faced a sentence of life in prison if she had been convicted of murder.
