Amanda L. Maphis, 30, pleaded guilty Tuesday to one count of unlawful manufacturing of methamphetamine in the third degree, a class D felony.

Maphis was arrested on April 12 in connection with a meth lab that was discovered at a home on Kingsley Avenue. Authorities say she possessed at least four items of laboratory equipment used to manufacture methamphetamine.

One of her co-defendants, Thomas Joseph, previously pleaded guilty to the same charge. He is scheduled to be sentenced next month.

Maphis also pleaded guilty to forgery. Police say she presented a false I.D. at Kinney Drugs in an attempt to buy pseudoephedrine, a main ingredient used to make meth.

Under the terms of the plea deal, Maphis will spend six months in jail followed by five years of probation.
