Sabrina Limon trial to begin today

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - The woman accused of conspiring with her former lover to murder her husband is back in court today.

The case has taken three years to build.

Sabrina Limon's husband, Robert Limon was shot to death in August 2014, at BNSF railyard in Tehachapi. Robert Limon was a BNSF employee, but rarely worked out of the Tehachapi office.

The murder was a mystery for investigators until they discovered Limon's wife, Sabrina, was having an affair with Jonathan Hearn, a firefighter who is 11 years younger than her.

Two months later the pair were arrested for his murder.

But the District Attorney's Office said there wasn't enough evidence against her so Sabrina was released.

It wasn't until this past January, after sitting in jail for two years, that Hearn agreed to testify against Limon, admitting the two planned the murder together.

In exchange, prosecutors reduced the murder charge to voluntary manslaughter.

A jury will decide if Sabrina Limon is guilty of first degree murder, even though she didn't pull the trigger.
