A Wichita Falls woman, accused of being involved in a murder in 2010, pleaded guilty on Thursday morning. 

Leslie Ann Acosta, 43, took a promise plea in the 89th District Court to serve 25 years. Acosta, her sister Rebecca Hernandez, and third suspect Corey Raiford are accused of stabbing and shooting Nichalaus Shaffer in February 2010.

Acosta told detectives during the investigation, the three took Shaffer to the 1200 block of River Lane. Acosta said she and Hernandez stabbed Shaffer and Raiford shot Shaffer. 

Police said they believe the motive had to do with personal financial fraud. Acosta will also have to pay a $304 fine. According to the inmate roster, Acosta was given credit for her nearly five years spent in the Wichita Co. Jail.
