WAYNE COUNTY, N.C. — A Wayne County teenage is no longer accused of plotting to kill her parents after a judge dismissed charges against her.

In a plea deal, the judge in the case dropped two counts of solicitation to commit murder charges against Heather Johnson.

As part of the plea agreement Johnson admitted she took the gun.

She is now serving a two-month jail sentence.
