Woman admits role in fatal beating

A young woman has pleaded guilty for her role in the assault of a southern Alberta man and the savage fatal beating of his male associate.

BROOKS — A young woman has pleaded guilty for her role in the assault of a southern Alberta man and the savage fatal beating of his male associate.

The 18-year-old pleaded guilty to being party to the aggravated assault of Abdiraham Kerow near Brooks, on Sept 1, 2008. In return, the Crown dropped charges of manslaughter and accessory after the fact to the murder in the death of Sharmarke Warsame.

The woman has been sentenced to three years in prison, but will spend less than two years behind bars because of time already spent in custody.

Warsame’s body was found four days after Brooks RCMP received a 911 call from Warsame indicating he was being attacked but didn’t know where he was.

Kerow was able to make it to the Brooks Health Centre, where he was treated for serious injuries including a fractured skull.
