Hearing postponed as NH woman accused of trying to kill boyfriend's lover goes into labor


NEWPORT — The woman accused of plotting to kill her ex-boyfriend's then-girlfriend missed her bail hearing for the second time this week after the hospital confirmed their concern of her going into preterm labor.

Monique Earle has pleaded not guilty to charges of conspiracy to commit murder and criminal solicitation to commit murder. Police said she offered to pay an undercover officer to kill the then-girlfriend in November. She has been out on bail since Dec. 1, 2016.

The bail hearing was originally scheduled for Tuesday, but with the blizzard closing state offices, Earle was given a motion to continue the hearing for Thursday at 11:30 a.m.

Earle was pregnant at the time of her arrest and included her children in her excuse for allegedly trying to off her boyfriend's former lover.

On Wednesday, Earle was hospitalized via ambulance. At the hospital she learned that she was two centimeters dilated, according to court documents.

Based on that diagnosis, the hospital was worried she would go into labor too soon, so they held her for a two-day observance period — which overlapped with her hearing. The court then filed another motion to continue her bail hearing.

Prosecutors recently filed a motion to revoke Earle's bail after learning she is back together with the boyfriend in question.

Earle's final pretrial is scheduled for May 5 at 9 a.m.
