ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - A former astronaut charged with confronting a romantic rival in an airport parking lot has pleaded guilty to felony burglary of a car and misdemeanor battery.

Lisa Nowak agreed Tuesday to the plea to avoid a trial scheduled next month. She had originally been charged with attempted kidnapping and burglary, which are felonies, and misdemeanor battery.

Nowak, a Navy captain, is accused of confronting Colleen Shipman in the parking lot of Orlando International Airport in February 2007 after driving from Houston. Shipman had begun dating Nowak's love interest, former space shuttle pilot Bill Oefelein.
