This case is a story of lust and greed and ends with a gruesome murder. It is a case of a contract killing that goes wrong. This was an evil plan that was hatched by an equally evil woman.
Although this murder is sad in that a good woman and mother of 3 is now dead, it is also a case in which the perpetrators and the planning of the murder seems to be a scene from the movie Dumb and Dumber.
This is the case of the murder of Carolyn Matthews, and the convictions of 3 perpetrators, one of which was her own husband Kevin Matthews.
