Mom Found Guilty In Murder Of Swinger Husband, Had Help From Young Lover

They were first going to poison the husband's favorite banana pudding, then moved on to the idea of setting his car on fire. Eventually, he was shot.

A mom in California was found guilty on Thursday for her role in her husband's murder. As The Daily Beast reports, 37-year-old Sabrina Limon was also convicted on charges of soliciting a murder, conspiring, and being an accessory in helping her younger lover kill her husband of nearly 14 years.

Robert Limon, 38, of Helendale died on August 17, 2014. Sabrina Limon’s lover, Jonathan Hearn, testified in September that the murder plot began as a joke months earlier.

Prosecutors say Sabrina and Hearn (seen below) wanted to kill Robert Limon in hopes of cashing in on his $300,000 life insurance payments and being together. Her defense attorney claimed that it was Hearn who was the real killer. “The only evidence that the people have is Jonathan Hearn: an admitted, cold-blooded, calculating killer, who stalked her husband and killed him,” said defense attorney Richard Terry.

They also said that the couple were swingers and that Sabrina wanted to leave that lifestyle. Said her defense attorney, "Sabrina “'began to feel less and less important and special to her husband'” because of their open marriage.  She fell for Hearn because he made her feel worthy and not “'not just some sex toy that her husband kind of passed around.'” 

Sabrina and Hearn, a firefighter, initially thought about poisoning the husband's favorite banana pudding. They even practiced the plot by poisoning a neighborhood dog. They then moved on to the idea of setting Robert's car on fire. Eventually, Hearn shot Robert Limon with a silencer fashioned from a flashlight and tried to stage a robbery.

The 27-year-old pled guilty to voluntary manslaughter and is facing up to 25 years behind bars. Sabrina Limon is set to be sentenced November 3.
