BRENTWOOD, N.H. (AP) — A Maine woman accused of helping her brother kill his ex-wife in New Hampshire is seeking a private investigator.
A judge granted a request Monday from Michelle Corson's attorney to use the investigator.
Corson, of Skowhegan, Maine, is charged with being an accomplice to first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder in the death of Amanda Warf.
Foster's Daily Democrat reports (http://bit.ly/17lRv7I) Corson waived her right to a probable cause hearing Monday.
Firefighters found Warf's body inside an abandoned concrete plant in Exeter on March 7. An autopsy later showed the 36-year-old former salon worker and longtime Exeter Hospital employee had been murdered.
Corson's brother, Aaron Desjardins, has been charged with killing Warf by cutting her throat.
Corson is accused of supplying her brother with a .32-caliber pistol that was used in the murder plot. She allegedly delivered the weapon to New Hampshire after receiving a coded message from Sarah Desjardins, her brother's new wife. The message called for a "roasting pan," allegedly code for a firearm.
Corson is being held without bail.
In court Monday, the judge granted a prosecutor's request that Corson should have no contact with Sarah Desjardins, who is being held at the same jail as Corson. She also was ordered to have no contact with the victim's mother and brother.
Sarah Desjardins is charged with conspiracy to commit murder and conspiracy to commit hindering apprehension or prosecution.
