BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -
A 19-year-old allegedly offered an 18-year-old $50,000 to help kill her mother so she could inherit money.
LSU student Nicole Lea Boover, 19, of New Orleans, was arrested for attempted first degree murder. Her step father told police she fired several shots at her mother early Monday morning while at their home in New Orleans. Her step father told police Boover left the residence and went back to the LSU campus with an unidentified male.
NOPD confirmed the incident and issued an arrest warrant for Boover. In police documents, it states that Boover's mother heard a knock on the door. When she went to open the door, she saw her daughter standing there with a silver handgun. The mother immediately shut the door, but the documents say Nicole fired three shots into the door before running away. The mother was not injured.
LSUPD officers found Nicole's vehicle on South Campus Drive, with the male inside. Officers were able to find Nicole a short time later in her on-campus residence.
NOPD officers, along with LSU officers executed a search warrant on the vehicle and her residence. Officers found marijuana in both places. LSU PD also charged Boover with simple possession of marijuana.
The male inside Boover's vehicle has been identified as Nathan Andrew Yuhas, also an LSU student. Yuhas is from Conshohoken, PA. He was arrested on the LSU campus around 4:30 p.m. on Oct. 9 for principal to attempted 1st degree murder.
In Yuhas' statement to police, it was learned that Boover asked him to go to New Orleans with her on a plan to murder her parents. She told Yuhas the motive was to get the inheritance and his cut would be $50,000. Yuhas admitted to police he was with Boover when she purchased gloves, duct tape and "Scream" masks. Yuhas told police they were going to leave the state and if they were stopped by police they would be vague with their answers and not admit what happened.
booked into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison then transferred to the New
Orleans Police Department. Yuhas was booked into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison as a fugitive from New Orleans.
