WEST JORDAN, Utah (KSTU) -- A former Utah high school health teacher pleaded guilty Friday to aggravated murder and other charges, admitting she shot and killed her ex-husband’s girlfriend.

Chelsea Watrous Cook, 33, went to her ex’s apartment on Nov. 25, 2018, and fatally shot 26-year-old Lisa Vilate Williams in front of Cook’s 3-year-old twins.

Cook pleaded guilty to aggravated murder, aggravated burglary, three firearm-related felonies and two misdemeanor charges of committing a violent offense in front of children.
