Maple Grove woman to plead guilty in mother's death

A Maple Grove woman has agreed to plead guilty to manslaughter in her mother's death, which she caused by pushing the older woman down steps and beating her with a can of pasta sauce.

Nicole Mari Wobbeking, 50, agreed to plead guilty Thursday, according to a filing in Hennepin County District Court. She agreed to charges of second-degree manslaughter in exchange for the dismissal of first-degree charges.

Sheila Wobbeking, 78, died on July 5. The Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office said the cause was an artery blockage that resulted from a broken shin suffered in the incident at her daughter's Maple Grove house on June 27.
