Woman Arranges Murder of Husband to Cash In on Non-Existent LI Policy


Raelynne Simonin, 25, has plead no contest to the charge that she murdered her husband.

Prosecutors allege Simonin had arranged for three men to beat and then fatally shoot her husband, Jack Vincent Purselley, who had told her that she was the beneficiary of a $1 million life insurance policy.

Purselley was described as a “con man” by authorities, and Simonin has been left to wonder about the whereabouts of this life insurance policy.
