Lake Area real estate agent Leigh Ann Bauman stands accused of conspiracy to commit murder, and it looks like she’ll stand trial.
Bauman appeared in a hearing Monday and Associate Judge Heather Miller has decided to move ahead with the trial.
Court records show Bauman’s accused of trying to hire a hit man to kill her ex-mother-in-law and she’s accused of being willing to pay $15-hundred dollars to have it done.
Prosecutors played audio at Monday’s hearing and they say it proves Bauman was trying to strike a deal with a witness who turned to police for help.
Bauman’s next court appearance is April 7th.
