BELFAST, Maine (AP) - A Maine woman has pleaded guilty to manslaughter after a home invasion victim was literally scared to death.

Belfast officials say 37-year-old Tara Shibles pleaded guilty in a deal with the state for a 10-month jail sentence. WABI-TV reports Shibles apologized in court Monday, saying she never meant to hurt anyone.

According to police, Shibles broke into the home of 72-year-old Joyce Wood in April and jumped into bed with her. Wood called 911 and ran out of the house before suffering a fatal heart attack.

The medical examiner says the shock of the home invasion triggered the heart attack.

Shibles is due to start her sentence immediately.
