A woman charged as the individual who shot and killed a Florida college student hiking with his girlfriend in Alabama’s woods more than a year ago has agreed to go to prison for more than three decades as part of a plea agreement with the government.

Yasmine Marie Adel Hider, from Oklahoma and now 21, admittedly kidnapped and murdered 22-year-old Adam Simjee on Aug. 14, 2022, during a robbery in Cheaha State Park, which the government notes is located in Talladega National Forest — explaining the concurrent federal jurisdiction of the case though the crime also took place within Clay County, Alabama.

Simjee was hiking that day with his girlfriend Mikayla Paulus, a fellow college student at the University of Central Florida.

As part of the deal, Hider has agreed to plead guilty to second-degree murder in the death of Simjee (Victim #1), kidnapping Paulus (Victim #2) but not resulting in death, and robbery. A fourth count was dismissed.
