Robinson Pleads Guilty to Manslaughter for 2011 Killing

Katie Robinson
Thirty-two year-old Katie Robinson pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter on Thursday for the killing of 30 year-old Antoinette Baker in December of 2011.

According to conflicting eyewitness reports, Robinson was involved in a bathroom fight with Baker and her sisters before stabbing Baker in the neck with a broken beer bottle, fatally wounding her.

As part of a plea bargain, Robinson was sentenced to up to two years in prison, but that sentence was suspended pending successful completion of three years of supervised probation. She must also ordered to pay the restoration for Baker's funeral in the amount of $1745. That money will go to Baker's family. Robinson was also sentenced to 45 days in jail, but will receive a 45-day credit for the time she has served in jail already.
