Woman pleas guilty in killing at NJ boarding home

The Associated Press

WOODBURY, N.J. – A 39-year-old woman has pleaded guilty to aggravated manslaughter in the strangling death of a fellow resident of a Gloucester County boarding home.

Prosecutors will recommend that Sharon Maslanka of Philadelphia be sentenced to 12 years in prison when she is sentenced in January.

Authorities say Maslanka killed 49-year-old Jack Trachtenberg after the two got into a dispute at the Shady Oaks Rest Home in National Park on Dec. 27, 2006.

The confrontation occurred one week after Maslanka was released from Ancora State Hospital in Winslow, a facility for patients with mental illness.

At Friday's plea hearing, Maslanka told the judge that she is taking medication for bipolar disorder and depression.
