A spoiled New Orleans teenage girl needed some money. She learned that her mother had $500,000. She wanted to inherit the money as soon as possible, so she hired teenage boy to help her kill her 51-year-old mother, Sherri.

Louisiana State University students Nicole Boover, 19, and Nathan Yuhas, 18, were arrested on Monday after Boover allegedly promised Yuhas $50,000 to assist her in killing her own mother.

Police in New Orleans say that Boover planned to shoot her mother and then profit from her death. She offered to give Yuhas cut of $50,000 from the inheritance if he helped the assassination plot. It was an enticing offer, since $50,000 cash is a lot of money for a teenager, so Yuhas agreed to help Boover with her carefully planned plot. In preparation for the murder, Boover and Yuhas got hold of a gun, bought gloves, tape and a "Scream" Halloween style mask.

On early Monday morning about 4:30 am Boover and Yuhas went to her mother’s house. Boover knocked on her mother’s door. Investigators said that when her mother looked through the peephole to see who’s at the house at this early hour, she saw her daughter Nicole, who smiled innocently.

When her mother opened the door, Boover pointed a gun at her mother, seeing the gun Sherri slammed the door shut. Boover fired three shots hitting the door instead of her mother.

Being unsuccessful in her murder attempt Boover and Yuhas fled the scene and returned to the University campus. Boover’s stepfather called police and reported the incident. Authorities found Boover’s car on the campus of Louisiana State University, with Yuhas still sitting inside the car.

Boover was found in his bedroom. Both suspects were arrested. Boover was booked into the New Orleans Parish Prison and charged with attempted first-degree murder. She is currently being held on $500,000 bond. She could not afford a lawyer and was assigned a public defender.

Yuhas was also booked into the New Orleans Parish Prison and charged with being a principal to attempted first-degree murder. He was released after posting a $100,000 bond.
