CAMP VERDE – Karrie Ann Funkhouser accepted a plea deal Monday before Judge Michael R. Bluff at Yavapai Superior Court in Camp Verde for her involvement in a deadly Cottonwood home invasion.

Funkhouser, out of custody, pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit armed robbery, one count of armed robbery, one count of burglary, and two counts of aggravated assault. The plea deal is prison mandatory, with a stipulation of 10-20 years.
