One of the Willmar residents charged with murder in the drug-related death of a young Pennock women this past April entered into a plea agreement in Kandiyohi County District Court Wednesday.
Makayla Oothoudt Willprecht, age 20, pleaded guilty to 2nd Degree Manslaughter-Culpable Negligence Creating Unreasonable Risk. A charge of 3rd Degree Murder will be dismissed, and Oothoudt Willprecht will be sentenced at 3 p.m. December 6th by Judge Stephen Wentzell, and her upcoming trial has been cancelled.
Police say she and co-defendant Hudiefe Mire of Willmar sold 19-year-old Samantha Myers pills that she thought were Percocet or Oxycodone, but they contained fentanyl, which killed her.
Mire faced the more-serious charges, but he posted bail this past spring and hasn’t been seen since. A warrant has been issued for his arrest.
