CINCINNATI (AP) - An Ohio woman has pleaded guilty in the killing of a woman found covered in burns and wailing in agony on the side of a rural road.

Muskingum (MUHS'-king-uhm) County Prosecutor Mike Haddox says his office offered Katrina Marie Culberson the plea agreement in exchange for her testimony against two others charged in the killing of 29-year-old Celeste Fronsman of Canton.

A driver found Fronsman on a road northeast of Zanesville in eastern Ohio last month. She had been raped and burned and had a strap around her neck. She died two days later at a Columbus hospital.

As part of the deal that will allow her to avoid the death penalty, Culberson pleaded guilty Wednesday to one count each of aggravated murder, kidnapping and aggravated arson.
