A 20-year-old New York woman alleges she helped murder her mother last year at the behest of her father, in part because he wanted to get out of paying child support, PEOPLE confirms.

The accusations by Karrie Neurauter came as part of a plea deal she agreed to on Wednesday, when she admitted to one count of second-degree murder in the Aug. 27 strangulation of mom Michele Neurauter.

New York prosecutors say that, in addition to her guilty plea, Karrie will also testify against her father, Lloyd Neurauter, who she accuses of being the mastermind behind Michele’s murder. (Lloyd has reportedly pleaded not guilty to his charges.)

Daughter Guilty of Mother's Second-degree Murder

  Daughter Guilty of Mother's Second-degree Murder Karrie Neurauter pleaded guilty to the second-degree murder of her mother following what has been described as an "ultimatum" set by her father, according to local investigators.Along with her father, 45-year-old Lloyd Neurauter, the 20-year-old of Corning, New York, is accused of killing her mother, Michele Neurauter, 46, last August, according to Democrat & Chronicle.

As part of her plea, Karrie said she was not physically involved in strangling Michele but helped Lloyd allegedly plan and carry out the killing.

Karrie alleges Lloyd approached her in mid-August “with an ultimatum,” according to a Steuben County District Attorney’s Office news release obtained by PEOPLE: “She could either assist him with killing her mother, to free him from the financial burden of child support and alimony and give him custody of his youngest child — or he would kill himself.”

Lloyd and Michele had three children together and their youngest daughter still lived with Michele. Karrie claimed her father wanted to have custody of the girl and not pay child support.

While Lloyd allegedly murdered Michele in an upstairs bedroom, Karrie distracted her younger sister in another room, she said.

Karrie also admitted helping her father allegedly stage her mother’s death as a suicide — and then lying to police during questioning, so as to cover up the crime, prosecutors said. Karrie alleged she was told to lie by her dad.
