    A New Hampshire woman who initially pleaded not guilty to being an accomplice to first-degree murder in the death of her husband's ex-wife in 2013 is scheduled for a plea and sentencing hearing.

    Sarah Desjardins of Epping was accused of helping to plan the death of Amanda "Amy" Warf.

    The 36-year-old Desjardins is scheduled to appear in Rockingham Superior Court on Friday for a plea and sentencing hearing. Details weren't known.

    Her husband, 38-year-old Aaron Desjardins, was sentenced in March to life in prison without the possibility of parole after pleading guilty to first-degree murder and conspiracy charges. His sister, 44-year-old Michele Corson of Skowhegan, Maine, pleaded guilty to conspiracy charges. She awaits sentencing.

    In pleading not guilty, Desjardins said she was under duress and told police about the plan.
