ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — It is another step towards justice for the family of a beloved Albuquerque postal worker. Police said the body of Marilyn Gandert was found beaten, stabbed, and burned last year.
In a tragic twist, the suspects were her own grandson, her daughter-in-law and their roommate.
Now Annie Rael is admitting to taking part in that murder. Rael pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and conspiracy to commit first-degree murder on Thursday.

In that plea agreement, she may also be called to testify against the other suspects when they head to trial.
