Woman Admits Killing Man in Covington, Cutting Off His Penis

A woman pleaded guilty Monday afternoon to her role in the murder and dismemberment of a man in Covington's Eastside neighborhood last year. Tiffany Herrera, 28, entered guilty pleas to charges of murder, tampering with evidence, theft, and abuse of a corpse. Herrera admitted in open court Monday to killing Donnell Brown and then cutting off his penis.

Brown's body was found in a building in the Eastside. Three people were eventually charged including Herrera, Austin Eash, and Quentin Kolenda. Eash, 22, pleaded guilty and received a 15-year prison sentence while Kolenda, 19, was sentenced to twelve years in prison.

The Kenton County Commonwealth's Attorney Office is recommending a 25-year sentence for Herrera.
