New Orleans, Louisiana (The Weekly Vice) -Louisiana State University students Nicole Boover, 19, and Nathan Yuhas, 18, were jailed Monday after Boover allegedly agreed to pay Yuhas $50,000 to assist her in murdering her own mother.
Boover, police say, was after a $500,000 inheritance which she planned to receive from her mother's death.
According to New Orleans police, Boover planned to shoot her mother and then profit from her mother's death. She offered to give Yuhas a $50,000 cut of her inheritance if he would help with the murder plot.
Boover and Yuhas purchased gloves, duct tape, and a "Scream" styled Halloween mask in preparation for the shooting.
Investigators say Boover knocked on her mother's apartment door at around 4:30 a.m. and smiled innocently through the door's peep hole. When Boover's mother opened the door, she saw Boover pointing a gun at her. Mrs. Boover slammed the door shut as Boover fired three shots into the door.
Boover fled the scene with Yuhas and drove back to the LSU campus. Boover's step-father called police and reported the incident. Officers found Boover's car on the LSU campus, with Yuhas sitting inside of it. Boover was found in her dorm room. Both suspects were apprehended.
Boover was booked into the New Orleans Parish Prison and charged with attempted first-degree murder. She is currently being held in lieu of a $500,000 bond. She was unable to afford a lawyer, and was assigned a public defender.
Yuhas was booked into the New Orleans Parish Prison and charged with being a principal to attempted first-degree murder. He was released after posting $100,000 bond.
