DOVER, N.H. (AP) - A New Hampshire woman serving a life sentence for paying relatives to kill her boyfriend in 2008 has been sued by his family for about $1.5 million.

Prosecutors said Dianna Saunders of Dover enlisted her ex-husband and her former stepson to kill David King to cover up the theft of thousands of dollars she swindled in a real estate deal.

Defense lawyers argued her ex-husband, Roy Saunders, arranged the killing.

Foster’s Daily Democrat reports (https://bit.ly/1h2lscq) King’s family is looking for money from a $450,000 life insurance policy Saunders collected from Roy Saunders, who was found dead in an apparent suicide.

The family’s lawyer said they are aware they will likely never see the $1.5 million, but he wants a judgment “in case something ever happens” with Saunders or her finances.
