FORT VALLEY, Ga. - A Montezuma woman will spend life in prison after pleading guilty to stabbing to death her aunt and cousin in central Georgia in 2009.

The Telegraph reports that 59-year-old Lillian Walker pleaded guilty to two counts of malice murder and one count of armed robbery. She entered the pleas during a court hearing on Monday.

Authorities said Walker attacked her 85-year-old aunt, Lillian Graves, and her 65-year-old cousin, Agnes Stewart, in their Fort Valley home in June 2009. They say Walker rifled through their purses to steal cash, checks, credit cards and prescription drugs. Walker also was accused of stealing Graves' Jeep Cherokee.
