Kyle Swenson, The Washington Post Published 3:29 am PST, Monday, November 12, 2018 It seemed like a casual Sunday afternoon last year. Barbecue was on the grill. The Philadelphia Eagles were on television, stomping the Arizona Cardinals, 34-7. A former U.S. Marine named Joey Sees and his wife were spending the day at the house of an acquaintance, Keith James Cote. The homeowner, an independently wealthy 62-year-old who had reportedly been confined to a wheelchair since a 2013 tumble at a Houston strip club, asked to talk to Sees alone on the patio behind his house in a leafy neighborhood in north Austin. That's when police say Cote floated the idea of a murder. According to a police arrest affidavit, Cote told Sees in October 2017 that he needed a "dirty deed, done dirt cheap." He then asked the veteran if he could get a silencer and a 9mm handgun. Right there on the patio, Cote allegedly pulled out $10,000 and offered the money if Sees would kill Cote's ex-girlfriend. … [Read more...] about He allegedly wanted his ex-girlfriend dead because she was dating a black man.

McLEAN, Va. -- Police have arrested a woman and charged her with the 2017 deaths of her sister and mother and staging the crime scene to look like a murder-suicide. When 23-year-old Helen Hargan and her mother, 63-year-old Pamela Hargan, were found dead in a McLean home in July 2017, police initially reported the deaths as a murder-suicide. But at a press conference Friday, Fairfax County Police said detectives quickly realized the crime scene had been staged. Megan Hargan was arrested Friday morning in Monongalia County, West Virginia. Fairfax County Police Maj. Ed O'Carroll said the 35-year-old Hargan tried to obtain money from her mother's bank account fraudulently on both the day of the slayings and the day prior. Tammy North, Pamela Hagan's sister, told CBS affiliate WUSA-TV that she was not surprised by the arrest. "I've known that it was coming, and now it's here. It was like it all blew up in your face," North said. She said she believes the motive was money and jealousy.
