YUCAIPA, Calif. (AP) - A Yucaipa woman and two men have been convicted in the murder of her estranged husband in 2011. Yucaipa is located about 10 miles east of San Bernardino.

The Press-Enterprise of Riverside reports (http://bit.ly/1dO9Bpe ) that Amy “Nikki” Hillrich’s boyfriend David Olvera and Emilio Pelayo Saldana were found guilty Friday of the murder of 39-year-old John Hillrich. Amy Hillrich was found guilty in a separate trial May 14.

Prosecutors say Amy Hillrich asked parolees Olvera and Saldana to help her get rid of her husband. The victim was shot outside his Ontario office.

The couple had been separated for years, but shared custody of their two children.

Police found a note in Amy Hillrich’s purse telling the victim she was sorry that it had come to the point where he had to be killed and signed it “Love, Nikki.”
