The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - WORLD -

PLAINFIELD, N.H. — An 83-year-old New Hamp­shire woman and her 63-year-old son have been charged in a mur­der-for-hire plot. Pauline Chase and Mau­rice Tem­ple were ar­rested Thurs­day and charged with con­spir­acy to com­mit mur­der, so­lic­i­ta­tion to com­mit mur­der and at­tempt to com­mit mur­der.

The two Plainfield res­i­dents are sched­uled for court ap­pear­ances Fri­day. It wasn’t im­me­di­ately known if they had lawyers.

The state po­lice crimes unit, the at­tor­ney gen­eral’s of­fice’s drug task force and the Sul­li­van County at­tor­ney’s of­fice were in­volved in the in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

De­tails on the al­le­ga­tions haven’t been re­leased. The Val­ley News re­ports Plainfield Po­lice Chief Paul Roberts couldn’t com­ment when asked if a vi­o­lent act had oc­curred. Roberts says the case is “still fluid,” and he de­scribed the in­ves­ti­ga­tion as “ac­tive.”
