WHEATLAND, Ind. (WTHI) - There's finally movement in a murder case that happened almost three years ago.

Officials say in February 2016, Candice Charlton fatally stabbed 35-year-old Gerald Sturgeon.

This was at a home on Short Street in Wheatland. That’s about 15 minutes east of Vincennes.

Officials say Sturgeon died at the hospital after the attack. Charlton has faced a murder charge since then.

According to online court documents, Charlton submitted a plea deal this week. We expect to learn more about the plea next week.

Court documents say her sentencing hearing is scheduled for January 18th.
