A 23-year-old Gwynn Oak woman pleaded guilty yesterday to attempting to intimidate a 14-year-old witness in her brother's murder trial.

Entering an Alford plea, Nikole Keona Young did not admit wrongdoing but acknowledged that prosecutors had enough evidence to convict her of going to the home of a girl who had seen Andre Michael Young fatally shoot an acquaintance Oct. 28.

Nikole Young told the girl that her brother's friends would intimidate her and force her to move, a prosecutor said.

Nikole Young is scheduled for sentencing in December and could receive up to 18 months in jail, according to the plea agreement. Andre Young was convicted last week of second-degree murder.
