Too close to home!

A Peterborough, Ontario, woman and her daughter will appear in court Wednesday morning accused of plotting to murder the man of their household – the woman's husband, and the daughter's father.The alleged plot came close to being carried out but was thwarted after an undercover police officer posed as a killer for hire, said Detective Staff Sergeant John Lyons of Peterborough police.

“It's not a common occurrence,” he said, declining to describe the alleged motive. The mum was certainly in the position of being [allegedly] willing to meet with a potential ... hit man and there's obviously enough evidence to support the charges. There was certainly the wherewithal to go through with it.”

Charged with conspiracy to commit murder and counselling to commit murder are Ashleigh Tinor, 47, and her daughter, Crystal Tinor, 23. They are accused of conspiring to kill Mario Tinor, 48, employed locally and a onetime Scouts Canada volunteer, who knew nothing of the alleged plot until police told him.

“It was a little sobering to say the least,” said Det. Staff Sgt. Lyons, who heads the force's Criminal Investigations Unit. “A bit jolting.”
