FINDLAY — A Leipsic woman has pleaded guilty to manslaughter and aggravated robbery — both felonies of the first degree — in Hancock County Common Pleas Court. Jessica Kisseberth, 27, was originally charged with murder and aggravated robbery related to the shooting death of Marcus Alexander, 31, Toledo, in Feb. of 2017.

The prosecution’s case against Kisseberth asserted she and two accomplices, Alexander and Joseph V. Fleming, 28, Toledo, conspired to rob Husam H. Coleman, 38, Chicago, at the Findlay Econo Lodge Motel on Feb. 17, 2017. During the attempt, Coleman shot and killed Alexander.

As part of a deal with the State, Kisseberth entered her guilty plea to a lesser charge of manslaughter last Wednesday, May 2. The deal, negotiated between the prosecution and the defense, includes a recommended 11-year prison sentence.

A sentencing hearing in the matter is scheduled for Wednesday, May 9, at 3:30 p.m. in Hancock County Common Pleas Court.
