Centre Hall, Pennsylvania (The Weekly Vice) - Police have now arrested a third suspect in the case of Miranda Boob, who allegedly conspired with a lover to have her husband killed.

Boob, Ronald Heichel, and 26-year-old Kermit Butts were all jailed in connection to the murder of 29-year-old Samuel Boob.

According to Centre Hall Police, detectives began investigating Miranda Boob after her husband, Samuel Boob was discovered dead in his driveway August 23rd, fatally shot twice with a shotgun. Detectives believe Mrs. Boob was having an affair with Heichel, who was one of her husband's co-workers, and they allegedly planned the murder or Mr. Boob.

Investigators say Heichel was driven to the Boob's residence by Butts, who idly stood by and witnessed the slaying of Mr. Butts, then drove Heichel away from the scene of the crime.

Heichel and Butts were captured after two concession stand workers at the Grange Fair reported to police that they had seen the suspects riding together in a pickup truck. The witnesses stated that Butts was "acting suspicious."

Investigators say Heichel offered Butts $5,000 in exchange for his help to dispose of the body. Numerous text messages were sent between Heichel and Boob regarding the murder plot, with statements such as "Hopefully he'll be six feet under," and "Take him out," as well as messages about whether a gun had bullets in it.

Mrs. Boob was booked into jail on charges of first-degree murder and solicitation.

Heichel was also booked into jail on first-degree murder charges.

Kermit Butts was booked into jail on charges of felony aggravated assault and hindering apprehension or prosecution.

A trial for Mrs. Boob and Heichel was set for October, but is expected to be delayed.
