A Lake Area real estate agent is behind bars, accused of Conspiracy to Commit First Degree Murder.

According to the Camden County Prosecutor, a witness reported that 43-year-old Leigh Ann Bauman of Lake Ozark, attempted to hire several individuals from St. Louis to kill her ex-mother-in-law and that she wanted it to “look like an accident.”

Officials say Bauman believed her ex-mother-in-law was interfering with her relationship with her children.

The Prosecutor’s office is requesting a no-bond warrant in the case.
