DULUTH, Minn. (AP) - A Duluth man has pleaded guilty to fatally stabbing his wife after she planned to divorce him.

Ryan Jazdzewski entered the plea to intentional second-degree murder Monday in the June death of 41-year-old Nicole Ann Jazdzewski at their home.


A criminal complaint says Jazdzewski stopped stabbing his wife in the kitchen after their 7-year-old daughter told him “don't kill mom.”

He agreed to a prison term of nearly 37 years in prison as part of an agreement with prosecutors. Sentencing is scheduled March 3.
