Plymouth County Jail

A northwest Iowa woman accused of lying about killing her husband has entered a plea.  

Plymouth County District Court records say 35-year-old Becky Hebert, of rural Akron, entered a written Alford plea to a misdemeanor charge of interference with official acts.

In an Alford plea, a person doesn't admit guilt but acknowledges there is enough evidence for a likely conviction.

Her sentencing has not been scheduled.

She had originally been charged with second-degree murder for the Oct. 6, 2017, shooting death of 40-year-old Jeremy Hebert.

People in nine Iowa counties hit hardest by flooding this spring have one more week to register with the federal agency tasked with disaster recovery.

Woodbury and Monona counties are part of that disaster declaration.

Registering with the Federal Emergency Management Agency can help homeowners and renters get grants to repair their home or pay for temporary housing. Deanna Frazier    is a spokeswoman for FEMA.
