A former Nebraska stripper accused of fatally stabbing her client at his Des Moines home has reached a plea deal in the case.

Court documents filed Wednesday show Andrea Morris pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in the 1999 death of 43-year-old Patrick McRae. She also pleaded guilty to willful injury and first-degree theft.

Morris faces up to 70 years in prison but will be eligible for parole after 70 percent of her sentence is served.

Morris was convicted in 2006 for McRae’s death and sentenced to life in prison without parole. A new trial was later ordered after Morris said she wasn’t told that court workers had smelled alcohol on the breath of her attorney.
