SKOWHEGAN, Maine — A local woman accused of helping her brother kill his ex-wife in New Hampshire waived extradition Wednesday at a hearing in Somerset County Superior Court, according to the district attorney.
Michelle D. Corson , 43, has been held without bail at Somerset County Jail in Madison since her arrest April 17, when she voluntarily went to the Skowhegan Police Station to speak with investigators from New Hampshire, according to a previously published report.
New Hampshire officials have 21 days to take custody of Corson, Maeghan Maloney, district attorney for Somerset County, said after the hearing.
Corson is charged in New Hampshire with conspiracy to commit murder and accomplice to first degree murder. She is accused of helping her brother Aaron Desjardins, 36, of Epping, N.H., murder his ex-wife, Amanda “Amy” Warf of Hampton, N.H., who was found dead on March 7 in Exeter, N.H.
Desjardins’ current wife, Sarah Desjardins, 34, is charged with conspiracy to commit murder and conspiracy to commit hindering apprehension or prosecution. She pleaded not guilty to the charges last week in Exeter District Court in Brentwood, N.H., according to Seacoastonline.com.
Authorities alleged that Aaron Desjardins used a sharp object to cut Warf’s throat, according to Seacoastonline.com. Her body was discovered on March 7 by firefighters extinguishing a small fire at the former City Concrete Co. in Exeter, said the news report.
