Plea deal imminent in fatal stabbing

Amy Adamson

A woman charged with stabbing a man to death, then trying to hire a hit man to kill witnesses in the case, is expected to enter into a plea agreement this week.

Amy Adamson, 20, is scheduled for a plea hearing Tuesday morning before District Judge Brian Flynn. Chief Deputy District Attorney Mark Hand, and Adamson’s attorney, public defender Steven Colvin, told the judge last week they reached an agreement resolving Adamson’s two cases. The terms weren’t disclosed.

Tuesday is the deadline for plea agreements in Adamson’s cases.

Adamson was arrested and charged in the Jan. 15 stabbing death of 20-year-old Ramon Sandoval, who was found dead near Monument Ridge Townhomes, 2680 B 1/2 Road. Authorities allege Adamson was angry with Sandoval, who had visited Adamson’s apartment the night before Sandoval was found dead, because she thought he had been flirting with her girlfriend.

An arrest affidavit says she admitted to stabbing Sandoval.

Adamson in June was charged with two counts of solicitation to commit first-degree murder. She was accused of trying to hire a hit man to kill two witnesses in the stabbing case.
