Woman accused in Hamilton Co. murder plot arrested in Montana

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Half of the duo accused of plotting to kill a Hamilton County attorney has been arrested.

Renee Perillo was taken into custody in a small town in Montana, according to police.

Along with her son, who police had already apprehended, Perillo was wanted in connection with a bizarre murder plot that involved hiding in wait in the victim’s vehicle back in May.

She is charged with conspiracy to commit murder, a level 2 felony; theft, a class A misdemeanor; carrying a handgun without a license, a class A misdemeanor; criminal trespass, a class a misdemeanor; and unauthorized entry of a motor vehicle, a class B misdemeanor.

Details about her arrest, including exactly where she was apprehended, have not been released.

She now faces extradition back to Indiana.

The murder plot was reportedly foiled when the attorney’s husband spotted the two in the back of the vehicle. Click here for more details.
