New Orleans, LA – This happened last week, but it has been siting in draft for days and I am tired of looking at it. A 19-year-old LSU student has been charged with attempted murder after police say she tried to kill her mother for inheritance money.
Last week, 52-year-old Sherri Boover received a knock on her door at 4.30am. When she looked through the peephole, she was greeted by her smiling daughter, Nicole Boover. But when she opened the door, Nicole pulled out a handgun and aimed it at her. The quick thinking mother immediately slammed the door shut before Nicole fired several rounds into the door and ran off.
Uninjured, Sherri called police and informed them they could probably find Nicole at the LSU dorms where she was currently staying. Outside of the dorm, police would find Nicole’s car with 18-year-old Nathan Yuhas, a friend and classmate of Nicole’s, sitting inside it. They would find Nicole in her dorm room.
Yuhas would spill his guts pretty quickly, telling investigators that Nicole had enlisted his help in murdering her parents in order to collect a $500,000 inheritance from which he would get a $50,000 cut. He said he was with Nicole when she bought duct tape, gloves and SCREAM masks. After killing her mother, Yahus says the pair were going to leave the state.
Nicole was charged with attempted first-degree murder with bail set at $500,000. Yuhas was charged with serving as a principal to attempted first-degree murder. His bail was set at $100,000.
The family’s minister told reporters that Nicole “is a good person” and that the family is working on “restoring the family order that has always been there.” On Thursday, Nicole’s aunt made a post on Facebook that stated: “Nicole Boover is an amazing person with many outstanding qualities. Thinking ahead and considering consequences is not one of them.”Tags: Attempted Murder, Crime, Louisiana, Nathan Yuhas, Nicole Boover, Shooting, student
