Wisconsin woman who argued she legally killed sex trafficker pleads guilty to homicide

MADISON, Wis. - A Milwaukee woman who argued she was legally allowed to a kill a man because he was sexually trafficking her pleaded guilty Thursday to a reduced count of reckless homicide.

Chrystul Kizer's decision means she'll avoid trial and a possible life sentence. It also leaves open the question of whether a state law that grants sex trafficking victims immunity for any offense committed while they were being trafficked extends all the way to homicide.

Kizer's attorneys, Gregory Holdahl and Helmi Hamad, didn't immediately respond to email and voicemail messages seeking comment.
