BELLEFONTE – A young woman pleaded guilty this morning to drug and robbery charges that stem from the night her boyfriend was accused of killing another man in January after a drug deal that went wrong.
Fatima Ghoul, 20, is facing at least four years behind bars, said her attorney, Phil Masorti.
Ghoul had been in court today for jury selection.
Ghoul is scheduled for sentencing Nov. 20, but Masorti said he’d likely ask for a delay.
Ghoul’s boyfriend, Tyler Marlatt, is scheduled for jury selection this afternoon. Marlatt is charged with the murder of Tyler Struble, 20. Police said Struble tried to get out of paying Ghoul about $20 for marijuana.
Marlatt and others, including Ghoul, then traveled to Struble’s home at 831 Henszey St. in Lemont, where Marlatt allegedly stabbed Struble in the neck after a struggle in the backyard.
