Woman pleads guilty to charges in kidnap case

CASPER (WNE) — A woman involved in an August kidnapping that left one dead and one injured pleaded guilty to aiding and abetting robbery in Natrona County District Court on Friday.

Kayla Wollitz was initially charged with aggravated kidnapping and robbery, but those counts were dropped with her guilty plea to the amended charge Friday. She pleaded not guilty to the original charges in February.

If the court accepts the plea agreement, she’ll be sentenced to two to four years at the Wyoming Women’s Center.
