A Massachusetts woman is due to be sentenced this week after pleading guilty to felony murder and robbery in drug-related killing in northern Maine.

The lawyer for Tia Ludwick of Leominster says she was part of a group that drove from Massachusetts for a drug deal with her cousin, and she had no idea anyone was going to be killed.

She’s due to be sentenced on Wednesday.

The victim, Douglas Morin, was found inside his car on Oct. 16, 2016, in Sherman.

Ludwick pleaded guilty to felony murder and robbery in February, and another defendant, Darin Goulding, pleaded guilty to robbery. A third defendant, Marcus Asante, of Fitchburg, Massachusetts, is awaiting a November trial.
