(WCNC) ASBURY PARK, N.J. — A 39-year-old New Jersey woman Thursday admitted killing her grandmother, acknowledging she beat the frail 94-year-old and left her incapacitated for a weekend before going in for “round two” and again beating her “into submission.”

Katherine Schubert, of Brick, N.J., pleaded guilty to manslaughter before Superior Court Judge Wendel E. Daniels in Toms River, N.J., admitting she caused the death in 2014 of Mary Driscoll, her maternal grandmother with whom she lived in Brick.

Schubert, at times crying while answering questions posed by the Ocean County prosecutor’s chief trial attorney, said she could not remember much of what happened, but acknowledged actions and inaction that led to her grandmother’s death.
