Prosecutor adds conspiracy charge against Stuart

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash. -Franklin County prosecutors have added a conspiracy charge against a man about to stand trial for attempted murder.

Pasco police extradited Todd Stuart from California early this year to face allegations he tried to murder his mother-in-law.

Stuart's wife, Tashia Stuart, shot and killed Judy Hebert in March 2011.  She claims she shot her adoptive mother in self defense.

Prosecutor Shawn Sant says he has a witness who will prove there was a conspiracy to kill Hebert.

Attorneys start picking a jury for Todd Stuart's trial next week.

Tashia Stuart goes on trial in October.
