SUNBURY — A husband and wife from Northumberland County entered pleas Thursday in connection with the death of the man’s grandmother in Snyder County.
Joshua Snook was in court Thursday morning in Middleburg and pleaded guilty to criminal homicide.
Just a few hours later, his wife Jennifer Snook pleaded no contest to conspiracy to commit murder. That means she doesn’t admit guilt but isn’t fighting the charges either.
Joshua Snook admitted to killing his grandmother, Bonnie Snook, 71, last February at her home in Beaver Township.
According to court papers, the couple went to his grandparent’s house. Joshua planned to steal a gun from their home and use it to possibly kill a man he allegedly fought with just hours earlier at a bar in Northumberland County.
Joshua Snook admitted to stabbing both of his grandparents and killing his grandmother, while his 9-year-old son was inside the home at the time.
Both Joshua and Jennifer Snook will be sentenced at a later date in Snyder County court. They both face decades behind bars.
