An Akron, Iowa woman accused of lying about killing her husband has entered a plea.

Plymouth County District Court records say 35-year-old Becky Hebert entered a written Alford plea Wednesday to a misdemeanor charge of interference with official acts.

In an Alford plea, a person doesn’t admit guilt but acknowledges there is enough evidence for a likely conviction.

She’d originally been charged with second-degree murder for the Oct. 6, 2017, shooting death of 40-year-old Jeremy Hebert.
The charge was dismissed just weeks later.

Deputies reported that she said numerous times that she’d shot her husband – statements that they later concluded were lies.
Her sentencing has not been scheduled.

No other arrests for the slaying have been reported.
