Sentenced to 78 Months with Credit for Time Served
On Tuesday, March 5, 2019, Gloria R. Redmann pled guilty to Manslaughter 1st Degree at a hearing held in front of Spokane County Superior Court Judge Annette Plese. Redmann’s guilty plea was a result of an investigation into the death of her ex-boyfriend, 54-year-old Michael T. Ahlstrom.

Redmann remained in custody until late October of 2017, where she posted a $50,000 bond, set by the initial trial judge, to secure her release. The court proceedings were later assigned to be heard in front of Judge Plese.
