An Irondequoit woman has pled guilty to second degree murder in the beating death of Lacandace Miles at the Strathmore Circle Apartments.


The Monroe County District Attorney's Office says Joanne Armour bludgeoned her roommate to death on December 13th, then bought a bus ticket and fled to Chicago. Miles' body was found the next day when a maintenance worker went to check out complaints of a baby crying.


Armour was arrested by Irondequoit police officers who caught up with her in Chicago three weeks later. Prosecutor Mary Randall says she expects Armour will get 18-to-20 years to life in prison when she's sentenced on September 10th.
