LONGUEUIL -- The ex-girlfriend of poker champion Jonathan Duhamel has pleaded guilty to three criminal charges in connection with his beating and robbery.
Bianca Rojas-Latraverse, who dated the Montreal-area poker player, entered the pleas Friday.
She pleaded guilty to kidnapping, break and enter, and conspiracy to commit an armed robbery.
She will remain detained until a sentencing hearing on Dec. 19.
The woman is one of five people charged in last December's attack. Duhamel was beaten and robbed, not only of more than $100,000 stored in a safe but also of a number of prized personal possessions.
Duhamel had won almost US$9 million in the 2010 World Series of Poker. The beating and robbery occurred a year later, in December 2011.
