MARTINSVILLE, Ind.-- A Brownsburg woman is expected to plead guilty to murdering her boyfriend last year. 

The 56-year-old Kristie Dant was arrested in July of 2016 for the murder of her boyfriend, 48-year-old Michael Vanhorn of Martinsville.

Vanhorn was shot to death at his home on Waverly Road.

Rather than face trial, Dant has agreed to plead guilty, according to officials. 

If a Morgan County judge agrees to the plea bargain, Dant could be sentenced at a January hearing.
