Judge accepts plea in deadly road rage case

PHOENIX - A Maricopa County Superior Court judge accepted a plea agreement in a case of a woman who police say shot and killed an Arizona State University student after rear-ending the back of her car.

KTVK-TV/KPHO-TV reports Tempe police say Holly Davis fatally shot Yue Jiang on Jan. 18, 2016, while Jiang's boyfriend sat next to her.
    
Davis was originally charged with first-degree murder, but the prosecutor and her attorney came to a plea deal of second-degree murder that would result in a mandatory 25-year prison sentence.
    
Judge Warren Granville on Tuesday accepted the plea agreement after hearing statements from Jiang's family who traveled to Arizona from China.
    
Davis' sentencing hearing is scheduled for Friday.
