KAHOKA, Mo. -- A Kahoka woman, who was working as a custodian at Clark County Middle School, has pleaded guilty to writing a threat in a bathroom at the school.

Court records show Amanda Joy Miller, 38, pleaded guilty Tuesday to one count of making a terrorist threat in the second degree in Clark County Circuit Court.

Miller is accused of writing, "I'm going to kill everyone at this school today," in a girl's bathroom stall. The message led to all Clark County schools canceling classes on Oct. 25. Miller was arrested Nov. 1. Sentencing is set for Jan. 4.

Miller has been held in the Clark County Detention Center since her arrest on a $50,000 cash-only bond.
