A Hancock woman accused of trying to entice someone to kill her son's former girlfriend is scheduled to be in Washington County Circuit Court for a bond review hearing Monday afternoon, a Circuit Court official said.

Grace Marie Fink, 67, of 6 W. Main St., Apt. 21, in Hancock, and her son, Clarence Franklin Meyers, 39, currently imprisoned at North Branch Correctional Institution in Cumberland, Md., were both indicted by a Washington County grand jury on charges of conspiracy to commit first-degree murder, felony witness intimidation, and obstruction of justice.

Court records allege that Fink and Meyers conspired in September to kill Melissa Lindeman, Meyers' former girlfriend.

Lindeman and her two daughters were sharing a house with Meyers on Feb. 16 when a blaze erupted at the house and the two girls were trapped inside.

Meyers in August pleaded guilty in Washington County Circuit Court to two counts of felony murder in their deaths. He is serving two consecutive life sentences.

Meyers, who also is accused of trying to entice an undercover Maryland State Police officer to kill Lindeman, faces an additional charge of solicitation to commit first-degree murder.

The bond review hearing for Fink is set for 1:30 p.m.
