Radford student pleads guilty to fatally stabbing roommate

RADFORD, Va. (AP) — A former Radford University student has pleaded guilty to fatally stabbing her roommate.
News outlets report 21-year-old Luisa Ines Tudela Harris Cutting pleaded guilty to second-degree murder Monday in the death of Alexa Cannon.
Judge Joey Showalter sentenced Cutting to 20 years in prison and 10 years of probation. He says Cutting also has to enroll in mental health counseling.
Commonwealth’s Attorney Chris Rehak says Cutting admitted to killing Cannon in January. Arrest warrants say Radford police found Cutting covered in blood in the pair’s off-campus apartment. Rehak says Cutting told police she was on an array of drugs the night she killed Cannon including, cocaine, mushrooms, Xanax and Adderall.
Police said the two had a friendship that predated them living together. Rehak says authorities never established a motive.
