In Utah, a 70-year-old woman accused of trying to hire a hit man was found guilty in court and charged with additional counts of attempting the same crime two more times, Fox News noted.

Linda Tracy Gillman was found guilty Friday of trying to hire a hit man to kill her ex-husband and was charged with two counts of criminal solicitation to commit murder that same day.

Gillman could face three years to life in prison for attempting to have her ex-husband murdered, KUTV noted. She was found not guilty of trying to hire someone to kill her ex-husband's current wife, the station said.

According to charging documents, the elderly woman paid a man who rents a condominium from her $5,000 to have her ex-husband and his wife killed and promised to pay an additional $100,000 once the couple were dead and she could collect her ex-husband's life insurance, Fox News noted.

The man she attempted to hire went to the police, which led to her being charged with two counts of criminal solicitation.

However, this did not deter her from later attempting to hire an inmate in prison to murder the man she had contracted to kill her ex-husband.

The plan was foiled when the inmate alerted authorities and Gilman was charged with obstruction of justice, a charge that was dismissed in November, The Washington Post noted.

Determined not to give up, Gillman then attempted to hire a hit man to murder a witness and attorney, but authorities latched onto the plot when she tried to send $155,000 in a check.

"She had lined up an individual who would take the witness out. And in addition, asked to have an attorney killed in an opposing civil action against her that she had lost," the district attorney said, Fox News noted.
