Exactly three years after the incident, a Surrey woman has admitted that as a teenager, she stabbed another teen girl to death outside a Vancouver house party.
Katey Renieta Gonzales was 18 in May 2010 when she was charged in the death of 17-year-old Angela Qui, also from Surrey.
Gonzales was initially charged with second-degree murder, but pleaded guilty to the lesser offence of manslaughter last Tuesday (May 21), the first day of what was to be her pretrial conference.
Qui was found lying unconscious on a sidewalk near Knight Street and East 51 Avenue at about 1 a.m. May 21 suffering from multiple stab wounds.
Another 16-year-old was also wounded during the incident, but was treated in hospital and released.
At the time, Vancouver Police said the two girls were stabbed after a fight broke out with another girl at a party in a basement suite nearby. Police said about 40 drunken teens were found in the rental home.
Gonzales turned herself in to police the day after the stabbing. Her sentencing is scheduled for June 19 in Vancouver Supreme Court.
