Brandy Stevens-Rosine Murder: Woman Who Told Victim's Mom She Killed Her '20-Year-Old Mistake' Pleads Guilty

MEADVILLE, Pa. -- Ashley Barber wrote a taunting note to the mother of 20-year-old Brandy Stevens-Rosine, an Ohio college student who was beaten and buried alive in a shallow grave last year.
This and other details were released Thursday, following Barber's first-degree murder plea in the slaying of Stevens-Rosine.
During the lengthy court proceeding, Crawford County District Attorney Francis Schultz read aloud an excerpt from a letter he said Barber, 21, wrote in notebook to Stevens-Rosine's mother on the day the teen was murdered.
"I f-----g murdered your 20-year-old mistake," Schultz read, quoting the letter. "She deserved it."
The note, Shultz said, is a clear indication of "what type of person" Barber is.
In changing her plea from not guilty, Barber admitted her role in the 2012 slaying of Stevens-Rosine.
"I don’t have much to say -- I have no explanation," Barber said. "You may not believe me, but I do apologize."
