BRENTWOOD — A New Hampshire woman who initially pleaded not guilty to being an accomplice to first-degree murder in the death of her husband's ex-wife in 2013 has reached a plea deal.
Sarah Desjardins was charged in connection with the death of Amanda "Amy" Warf. She's scheduled to appear in Rockingham Superior Court on Aug. 7 for a plea and sentencing hearing.
Her husband, Aaron Desjardins, was sentenced in March to life in prison without the possibility of parole after pleading guilty to first-degree murder and conspiracy charges. Prosecutors said he forced Warf to drive to a concrete plant, where he slit her throat, poured gasoline on her and set her ablaze.
His sister, Michele Corson of Skowhegan, Maine, pleaded guilty to conspiracy charges.
Both were expected to testify against Sarah Desjardins.
