Pa. woman pleads guilty to killing man named Paris Hilton

ERIE, Pa. (AP) – A Pennsylvania woman who fatally punched a 63-year-old man named Paris Hilton faces up to five years in prison.

The Erie Times-News says 45-year-old Sandra Gray claims Hilton made unwanted sexual advances toward her. She pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter before an Erie County judge on Thursday.

Prosecutors say the Erie woman was drinking with Hilton and his wife when she punched him in the side of the head Jan. 6.

Defense attorney Eric Hackwelder says the plea to the least serious of all homicide charges was appropriate because Gray didn’t mean to kill Hilton and was responding to an unwanted advance.

Gray told police she left the house after punching Hilton, but returned three hours later to find him foaming at the mouth.

She’ll be sentenced Dec. 14.
