According to the police, a mother and her son had planned to kill a divorce lawyer that was trying to seek money from the mother’s recently-divorced husband. The husband saw the pair sitting in a car outside of their home and called the police. Police found a gun and a syringe with what they believe was a lethal dose of anesthesia. They were arrested and posted $20,000 bail. Now they pair is on the run after failing to show up for their court date.
