Trio indicted for murder of Hampton woman at concrete plant in Exeter
Aaron Desjardins, 37, of Epping was indicted on charges of first-degree murder for allegedly using a .32-caliber handgun to force his estranged wife, Amanda "Amy" Warf, to the City Concrete building in Exeter and slit her throat with a knife, indictments say.
He also faces charges of conspiracy to commit murder and conspiracy to commit hindering apprehension.
Warf's body was found inside the concrete plant on March 7 after firefighters responded to a blaze allegedly set by Desjardins by using gasoline, according to prosecutors.
Desjardins' sister Michele Corson, 44, of Skowhegan, Maine was indicted on charges of accomplice to first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit murder and conspiracy to commit hindering apprehension.
Corson allegedly brought the gun used in the murder from her home in Skowhegan, Maine to her brother in Epping at the prompting of Desjardins' new wife Sarah.
Sarah Desjardins was indicted for accomplice to first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit murder and conspiracy to commit hindering apprehension. Indictments say on Jan. 1 she began discussing plans with her husband to murder Warf and ways to avoid detection by police.
She also allegedly sent a text message to Corson, asking her to bring the gun from Maine to New Hampshire.
The indictments provide some new details of the alleged murder plot, including efforts by the trio to avoid suspicion by police.
Aaron Desjardins decided to shave his head, goatee and hair off his arms with the help of his sister to avoid apprehension. At one point, he also purchased a camouflage mask, indictments say.
