Las Vegas woman enters Alford plea in connection to husband’s death

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A Las Vegas woman has changed her plea more than a year after being charged with open murder in connection to the death of her husband.

On Monday, Emily Aiko Ikuta made the decision to plead guilty by way of the Alford decision for second-degree murder, according to court documents.

Both parties agreed to a 10 to 25-year sentence in the Nevada Department of Corrections.

The incident took place on March 22, 2021, when Ikuta’s husband, Jourell Ng, was shot to death at his home.

According to police, Ng had a live chat session active on his computer. The person he was chatting with heard what was going on in the background as he died.
