BARRE, Vt. — A Ver­mont woman pleaded guilty Thurs­day to killing a so­cial worker who she be­lieved played a role in her los­ing cus­tody of a 9-year-old daugh­ter and three rel­a­tives she be­lieved had turned her in to the state. Jody Her­ring, ap­pear­ing in a court near the state of­fice build­ing where so­cial worker Lara So­bel died, en­tered the guilty pleas to one count of first-de­gree mur­der and three counts of se­cond-de­gree mur­der. Her­ring, 42, ad­mit­ted shoot­ing So­bel as So­bel left work on Aug. 7, 2015. She also killed cousins Regina Her­ring and Rhonda Her­ring, and her aunt Julie Falzarano. In court Thurs­day, Her­ring an­swered a judge’s ques­tions about the case. She could be sen­tenced to life with­out pa­role. Sen­tenc­ing will come at a later date.
