BRENTWOOD, N.H. -- A woman was convicted Wednesday of trying to hire a man to kill a prominent lawyer's wife.

Katherine Mendola, 28, was convicted of solicitation to murder, which carries a sentence of up to 30 years in prison.

Jurors watched a videotape of Mendola trying to hire an undercover police officer to kill the wife of Manchester lawyer B.J. Upton. Police set up the undercover operation after being tipped off to Mendola's plan to hire someone to kill the woman.
Mendola claimed that she was the victim of an abusive boyfriend, who ordered her to plan the killing.

Mendola is being held pending her sentencing.
