A Baton Rouge woman has pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the 2008 shooting death of her estranged husband.

Turishcheva Coleman shot and killed James Coleman during a domestic argument.

Manslaughter carries a sentence of up to 40 years in prison, but prosecutors and attorneys have agreed that Coleman's sentence will not exceed 15 years.

A pre-sentence investigation was ordered.

Coleman was scheduled to stand trial Monday on a second-degree murder charge, which carries a mandatory sentence of life in prison.

Coleman's sentencing is set for July 29.
