Teenage Killer of Carnegie, Local Hip-Hop Star, Pleads Guilty to Manslaughter
Kathryn Elizabeth Hetrick, a teenage drunk driver responsible for the death of local hip-hop artist Abay Lattin last year, pleaded guilty to manslaughter in Maricopa County Superior Court.
The 18-year-old former Arizona State University student also pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated assault in connection with the fatal car accident last September in Tempe that killed Lattin (who performed with the group Silver Medallion under the stage name of Carnegie).
And to one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in the accident as a part of a plea agreement with the Maricopa County Attorney's Office that dismissed a second aggravated-assault charge.
