MUSKEGON, Mich. (AP) — A western Michigan woman has been ordered to spend 6 to 30 years in prison for plotting with her sister to have her brother-in-law killed.
Fifty-one-year-old Vickie L. Brill wept in Muskegon County Circuit Court before her sentencing Tuesday.
Brill and her 46-year-old sister Diane Hart pleaded no contest to solicitation to murder. The pleas aren’t an admission of guilt but are treated as such for sentencing.
Hart was sentenced April 28 to 6-30 years in prison. Judge William C. Marietti issued both sentences.
Authorities say the Ravenna-area sisters sought to have Hart’s husband Gene killed and met in a parking lot with an undercover state trooper.
They offered jewelry and $5,000 for the killing. The meeting was videotaped.
