Mother in Murder For Hire Plot to Go on Trial Next Week

While her husband took a plea deal and is now in prison, Christina Peyton is going to trial next week on charges she tried to hire a hit man to kill their daughter's boyfriend.

Christina Peyton was in 30th District Court today for another pretrial hearing on the charge of criminal conspiracy to commit capital murder. The jury panel will gather at 1:00 pm Monday.

Authorities say a person the Peytons thought was a hit man was actually an undercover cop. Police say the Peyton's agreed to pay $500 dollars to have their daughter's boyfriend killed during the conversation with the undercover officer.

The husband, Jeffrey Peyton, already pleaded guilty to the same charge and received a 21-year prison term. He is now in prison in Abilene and he is also on the prosecution's witness list of about 40 people.

Christina Peyton suffers from numerous medical problems, with 10 prescriptions on her list, and requires several treatments or medications daily.
