Man pleads to 3rd-degree murder in girlfriend's death

PITTSBURGH (AP) — A ia man has pleaded guilty to third-degree murder in the stabbing death of his girlfriend in western Pennsylvania last year. Allegheny County prosecutors say they have agreed to recommend a sentence of 15 to 30 years in exchange for Tuesday's plea by 60-year-old Derrick Avant. He turned himself in to authorities in April after an arrest warrant was issued in the death of 55-year-old Allison Fritzius. Police say she was apparently stabbed to death in the couple's Pitcairn apartment and a trail of blood led them to a porch where the body was found.
