EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) – A southwestern Indiana woman has been found guilty in the March 2012 of her estranged husband.
A Vanderburgh County jury convicted 23-year-old Megan Mecum on Thursday. Prosecutors said she encouraged her boyfriend and his cousin to rob and kill 42-year-old Keith Vaughn.
WEHT-TV (http://bit.ly/18TQAbi ) reports Mecum’s boyfriend, James Mayhugh, and his cousin, Hubert Mayhugh III, broke into Vaughn’s home and robbed him before fatally stabbing him.
James Mayhugh has pleaded guilty and will be sentenced Dec. 30. A jury found Hubert Mayhugh III guilty in September. He was sentenced to 60 years in prison.
Mecum had pleaded guilty to lesser charges in return for her testimony against the Mayhughs, but the plea agreement was rescinded after investigators determined she had lied about her relationship with James Mayhugh.
