DOVER, Del. (AP/WBOC)- A 23-year-old Leipsic woman has pleaded guilty to six felonies related to her father's stabbing death.

Jennifer L. Barnes also agreed Monday to testify at the trial of 24-year-old Gerard T. Schweiger, of Felton, who is charged in the death of 45-year-old Tony Mozick Sr., of Leipsic.

Barnes pleaded guilty to tampering with evidence, hindering prosecution, second-degree conspiracy, making a false statement and other offenses. She faces up to 12 years imprisonment.

Authorities allege that Schweiger, the father of one of Barnes' four children, used a small knife to fatally stab Mozick in early January. He then conspired with Barnes to throw the body in the Leipsic River in a 55-gallon container, police said. A trapper found the body in February.

Schweiger is charged with first-degree murder, a weapons offense and the same six felony counts to which Barnes pleaded guilty.
