Woman pleads guilty in connection with murder case

A woman initially charged with rendering criminal assistance and residential burglary in the murder of a Grandview man pleaded guilty yesterday to one of the charges.

In a deal with Yakima County Prosecutors, Sandra Borboa plead guilty to residential burglary domestic violence in exchange for dropping the criminal assistance charge.

Borboa was accused of being a passenger in a car driven to the home of Kevin Underwood of Grandview. Underwood was fatally stabbed and Lee Ann Ferson was also stabbed in the attack. Richard Rangel is facing first degree murder, attempted murder and burglary charges from the same incident.

Juan Sias is also accused of rendering criminal assistance in the attack and is slated to go to trial in April.

Borboa was sentenced to nine months in jail following her plea and was released due to the fact that she has already served her time.
