COVINGTON, KY (FOX19) -

A woman pled guilty on Monday in a high-profile murder case in Covington.

Tiffany Herrera and Austin Eash were both charged in the killing and dismembering of Donnell Brown in 2011.

Quinton Kolenda, a 17-year-old at the time, was also arrested and charged.

In a tweet posted by Kentucky Prosecutor Rob Sanders (@KYprosecutor), Herrera pled guilty to murder, tampering with evidence, abuse of a corpse and theft.

Investigators in the case said Brown and Herrera would often meet, and he would give her drugs or money in exchange for sex.

The night of his death, Herrera said Brown got physical with her, so she cut his throat. She then called Eash and the juvenile, and Eash cut Brown's throat again, according to police.

They then dismembered Brown and tried to clean the apartment, leaving him in the bathtub.

Both Eash and Kolenda previously pled guilty in the case.

Sanders said Herrera is facing up to 25 years in prison.
