(Troy, Indiana) In November 2011, 52-year-old teacher Jane Kleaving was arrested for attempting to hire a contract murderer to kill an Owensboro KY man.
Law enforcers received a tip and a sting operation was initiated, leading to Kleaving's arrest.
This week, Kleaving was found guilty on one count of conspiracy to commit murder.
State police say the former Tell City teacher met an undercover officer at a Spencer County park, thinking he was a hit man.Sentencing is scheduled for August 22.
They say Kleaving couldn't pay the whole fee, so she offered to stage a burglary at her home, and make an insurance claim.
According to a probable cause affidavit, Kleaving thought the man she wanted to have killed was sexually abusing a relative.
