Son & Fiancee Hired Hit Man To Kill Mom

Full story and both MySpace profiles:

At first, it looked like Rita Oberhart-Servais was killed during a burglary at her south St. Louis home.

Now, authorities believe the 57-year-old woman's own son and his fiancee hired a friend to kill her. Money was the suspected motive.

Patrick Oberhart, 21, fiancee Katherine Lindsey, 32, and their friend, Jimmie Lee Tate Jr., 22, were charged Thursday with first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit murder and armed criminal action. None of the three had previous criminal records.

Oberhart-Servais was shot in the forehead on Dec. 27 as she stepped onto her front porch.

Investigators think the suspects wanted the killing to look like a burglary, so they broke a rear window of the house. But detectives found only one previous residential burglary in the neighborhood in recent months.
