KENNEWICK, Wash. (AP) — A jury has convicted a Washington state girl of plotting to kill a high school classmate she briefly dated.

Tri-City Herald reported Monday that 18-year-old Fe Hadley was found guilty for conspiracy to commit first-degree murder in a November 2017 planned attack.

Hadley denied conspiring with Jeremiah Cunningham and Gabriel Pfliger to fatally stab 18-year-old Ryan Vaughn behind a store and hide his body in an orchard.

Authorities say Vaughn never went behind the store and other students riding scooters in the area noticed suspicious activity.

Hadley’s trial started Oct. 21 and she remains in custody on $100,000 bail.

A sentencing hearing is expected to be scheduled in the next month.

Cunningham and Pfliger both pleaded guilty to separate charges and were sentenced.
