MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

A woman who initially pleaded guilty in connection with the murder of a Le Bonheur Children's Hospital nurse has now been cleared of all charges.

Prosecutors agreed to drop the charges and clear Jerrica Norfleet's record.

Norfleet was indicted on charges of accessory after the fact, to wit, first-degree murder. 

There were others charged in the murder. Her charges carried a one to six year prison sentence. Now, all of that will be cleared.

Dondre Johnson, 21, was convicted in killing David Santucci outside Pearl's Oyster House in August 2013.

Mario Patterson was also indicted in charges of murder in the perpetration of an attempted robbery.

Santucci was walking to his car after attending a party when Johnson and Patterson confronted him. They demanded money and then shot him. Norfleet told investigators she was waiting in the car when the shooting happened.

Johnson, along with two others, admitted killing Santucci while looking for a random person to rob.

He faces in life in prison.
