CALGARY — A woman accused of pushing a 17-year-old boy to his death from a platform at a Calgary light rail transit station has pleaded guilty to manslaughter.

Natalie Pasqua entered the plea prior to what was to be her second trial for the August 2007 death of Greg Prevost.

The 28-year-old woman was sentenced to 12 years in prison after she was found guilty of second-degree murder at her first trial in February 2008.

An appeal court overturned the conviction when Pasqua argued that the trial judge made a mistake in the charge to the jury.

Court heard Prevost was killed as he and Pasqua fought over a $10 drug deal.

Pasqua will return to court Dec. 21.
