LOCKPORT – A Niagara Falls woman who slashed another woman with a razor blade in a Cleveland Avenue confrontation June 12 accepted a plea offer Wednesday in Niagara County Court.

Shawnquilla N. Armstrong, 20, of Ninth Street, pleaded guilty to third-degree assault and faces up to a year in the County Jail when she is sentenced March 8 by Judge Sara Sheldon Farkas.

Armstrong cut her 19-year-old cousin on the face and body. Farkas had balked at the misdemeanor plea last week because she felt the attorneys were in too big of a rush to settle the case, but she agreed to it Wednesday.
