A Shasta Lake woman will likely spend the next three decades in prison after agreeing to plead guilty in connection with a botched robbery that led to the deaths of two Ingot men in 2013.

Rebecca Wilson, 33, will be formally sentenced next month. Prosecutors say Wilson killed 57-year-old Michael "Mickey" Forsyth and 65-year-old Thomas "Tommy" James Burton during a burglary on October 25, 2013.

Last year one of Wilson's co-defendants, Joshua McCormick pleaded guilty to three counts of first degree murder in exchange for a 150-year to life sentence.

The other co-defendant, Byron Lee Willis, is awaiting trial, which is set to begin April 14.
