EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) — A southern Indiana prosecutor believes a woman who was originally charged with murder in the stabbing death of her husband lied under oath about her relationship with another man charged in the death.
The Evansville Courier & Press reports Vanderburgh County chief trial deputy Mike Perry alleges 22-year-old Megan Mecum of Evansville lied under oath about her relationship with James Levi Mayhugh and that her plea deal should be rescinded. Mecum's defense attorney, Barry Blackard, disputes that.
Mecum was allowed to plead guilty to conspiracy to commit armed robbery and a drug possession charge if she testified truthfully against Mayhugh and his cousin, Hubert Mayhugh III.
They are each charged with murder, armed robbery, burglary and theft in the March 2012 stabbing death of 42-year-old Keith Vaughn.
