DULUTH, MN (AP)--   A Michigan woman has pleaded guilty to murder in the fatal stabbing of a Duluth woman, but says she wouldn't have done it if she wasn't under the influence of synthetic drugs.

The Duluth News Tribune reports Nicole Leone Revello, 29, of Marquette entered her guilty plea Friday in Duluth. She agreed to a sentence of about 30 years, and will be formally sentenced in September.

Revello admitted she stabbed Lisa Kay Davis, 46, on June 2. Revello's attorney, Brent Olson, says his client is sorry and wanted to take responsibility for what she did. Olson says Revello is a different person when she is not under the influence of synthetic drugs.

Prosecutors say Revello intentionally stabbed Davis in the back after the two argued earlier that day.
