A local woman who prosecutors said conspired to kill her husband's ex-wife is due in court this morning.
Sarah Desjardins, 36, of Epping, was charged with conspiracy to commit murder and hindering apprehension in connection with the death of Hampton resident Amy Warf.
Desjardins is due in Exeter District Court at 10 a.m. this morning for a bail hearing. She is currently being held on $250,000 bail.
Prosecutors said Desjardins' husband, Aaron, . Warf's body was found in an abandoned Exeter factory in March.
Senior Asst. Attorney General Susan Morrell said Sarah Desjardins sent a text message to Michele Corson—Aaron's sister—asking her to bring a gun to New Hampshire as part of the murder plot. Corson did so, Morrell said. Morrell declined to go into more detail.
Corson, 43, of Skowhegan, Maine has been charged with being an accomplice to murder—a more serious charge than what Sarah Desjardins is facing. Corson is being held on no bail in a Maine jail as prosecutors work out an arrangment to bring her to New Hampshire to face her charges.
Warf had a child with Desjardins. Desjardins has another child with Sarah.
Warf was found dead in the abandoned City Concrete Co. factory in Exeter on the morning of March 7. Firefighters discovered her body after putting out a fire in the building. Authorities have declined to say how the fire started.
Aaron Desjardins is currently sitting in jail while a grand jury reviews his case for possible indictment—the step before a trial.
