Dubuque Woman Accused of Killing Ex Husband Makes Plea

A judge has accepted guilty pleas from a Dubuque woman accused of killing her former husband.

The plea agreement filed Monday says 64-year-old Dolores Flynn plead guilty to voluntary manslaughter, willful injury and assault, rather than go to trial on a charge of second-degree murder.

Flynn faces a sentence of up to 30 years in prison. Her sentencing is May 14 at 1:30 p.m.

Court documents say Dubuque police found 72-year-old Gary Breckenridge dead on Jan. 4, 2016, at the home he shared with Flynn. She's been examined and treated by psychiatric experts twice since her arrest and was found competent for trial.
