Marinda admitted to charges of racketeering, murder, robbery, accessory after the fact of murder, fraud, and unlawful possession of firearms and ammunition. She said she understood the charges and admitted to all of them. She wanted to be found guilty on account of her admissions.

“One has choices and one must bear the consequences,” Marinda said when asked about her sentencing.
