PLACERVILLE, CA - Just minutes after learning the fate of her and her convicted boyfriend, Tylar Witt told ABC News she is partly responsible for her mother's death.
In June of 2009 Steven Colver was 19 years old, Tylar Witt was 14, and Witt's mother Joanne caught the couple having sex.
In an effort to keep Colver out of the jail, the two took part in a murder scheme that left Joanne dead with 20 stab wounds.
In court, Witt told jurors it was all Steven's idea, as he came to her house late at night and stabbed Joanne in her own bed.
But, after a two year legal process, Witt accepted part of the blame.
"When you say you did a terrible thing, you were responsible what are you telling us? asked ABC's Jim Avila.
"That I am responsible for my mother's death."
"I don't, I don't know if I feel comfortable answering that," Witt said.
