SKOWHEGAN, Maine — A 43-year-old Skowhegan woman who police say helped kill her brother’s former wife was arrested Wednesday night in Skowhegan.

Michele Corson was arrested at 373 Water St. She initially is charged with being a fugitive from justice in connection with the death of Amanda “Amy” Warf, former wife of her brother.

New Hampshire authorities, however, have obtained arrest warrants for Corson for one count of conspiracy to commit murder and one count of conspiracy to commit hindering apprehension or prosecution.

Corson is expected to appear Friday in either Skowhegan District Court or Somerset County Superior Court.

Warf was found dead March 7 at an abandoned concrete factory in Exeter, N.H., according to published reports.

Aaron Desjardins, Warf’s ex-husband and the father of her child, was charged last month with with murder and is being held without bail in New Hampshire.

Desjardins was arrested on a murder charge last month and is being held without bail in New Hampshire.

Also arrested Wednesday night was another alleged co-conspirator, New Hampshire Attorney General Michael Delaney, New Hampshire State Police Col. Robert Quinn and Exeter (New Hampshire) Police Chief Richard Kane said in a news release issued Thursday.

Aaron Desjardins’ wife, Sarah Desjardins, 34, was arrested at 67 Railroad Ave. in Epping, N.H. She was charged with one count of conspiracy to commit murder and one count of conspiracy to commit hindering apprehension or prosecution.

Her arraignment was held Thursday in Exeter District Court in Brentwood, N.H., according to Seacoastonline.com.

During the proceedings, her bail was set at $250,000. Prosecutors cited suicidal tendencies as the reason for asking for a high bail and they alleged she provided a false alibi for her husband.
