A so-called fan of disc jockey Miriam ``Mimi'' Brown yesterday pleaded guilty but mentally ill in Montgomery County Court to the shooting of Brown in the Main Line parking lot of WDAS-FM (105.3) in April.
Loretta Edwards, 37, could face up to 27 years in jail for firing an unregistered .25-caliber semiautomatic handgun four times through the window of Brown's car - shooting the DJ once in one of her arms and grazing a shoulder.
By pleading guilty but mentally ill, Edwards gave up her right to a trial. She was certified as a paranoid schizophrenic by psychologists for both the state and the defense. However, she was not legally insane the night she waited for Brown in the shadows of the City Avenue parking lot and shot her, attorneys agreed yesterday.
