SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - One of two people charged in the 2002 abduction of Elizabeth Smart has pleaded guilty to federal charges.
In a deal with prosecutors, Wanda Eileen Barzee pleaded guilty to charges of kidnapping and unlawful transportation of a minor Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Salt Lake City.
The 64-year-old Barzee could face a life sentence for the kidnapping charge and up to 15 years for the other count. It's unclear whether she may get a reduced sentence in exchange for her
Smart was 14 when she was taken at knifepoint from the bedroom of her Salt Lake City home, sparking a search that riveted the nation. Nine months later, in March 2003, Barzee and Brian David
Mitchell were arrested they were spotted walking on a suburban street with Smart.
