TUCSON, Ariz. — A judge at the Pima County Superior Court will speak to people representing Genna Ayup at 4 p.m. on Monday. This discussion comes after the county attorney said they're offering Ronald Corbin, the man accused of killing Genna, a plea deal.

Corbin is facing manslaughter for the death of his girlfriend Genna Ayup. In 2012, Corbin told them he accidentally shot her while cleaning his gun. It was determinded to be an accident until the Pima County Attorney's Office re-opened the case last year.

Genna Ayup's older sister Heather Picard said her and rest of the family are just looking for justice for Genna.

"It's important for me to keep her memory alive because she should not be dead. She should be here, enjoying her life, raising her child, but her life was taken from her," Picard said.

A grand jury indicted Corbin, but now a change of Plea is scheduled for November.

The meeting with the judge could get a date as to when the change of plea will happen.
