A Pasadena woman will spend three months in jail for killing her neighbor over a feud. Tanya Schmidt pleaded guilty to manslaughter and will spend 180 days in the county jail, serve 10 years deferred adjudication and perform 1,000 hours of community service.

In 2009, police say Schmidt shot and killed Laura Hinson, and wounded Hinson's husband as well as her own husband. Investigators said the neighbors feuded for months over a slashed tire.
