Teen And His Babe Hire Gunmen to kill his jeweler dad

A Texas teenager and his girlfriend were accused of hiring a hit man to kill the man's jeweler father, who was gunned down in March during a robbery, authorities said on Wednesday.

Nicolas Patrick Shaughnessy and Jaclyn Alex Edison, both 19 and of College Station, were arrested on a criminal application charge to commit a capital murder, Travis County officials said.

Officers discovered Theodore Shaughnessy dead at home with multiple gunshot wounds on March 2 after Corey Shaughnessy, the teenager's mother, called 911 to report an intruder at home, the researchers said. Authorities said the murder plan also required the death of the mother, but she was unhurt. The dog of the family was killed in the robbery.

Theodore Shaughnessy was the owner of Gallerie Jewelers in Austin. The company said on its Facebook page in late April that Nicholas Shaughnessy was ready to take over the jewelry.

An obituary for the elderly Shaughnessy published in Austin American-Statesman said he was "a proud father of his son, Nicolas".

Apparently, Nicholas Shaughnessy asked several people if they would be willing to be paid for killing someone in the months leading up to the shooting, the researchers said. The teenager said he had received approximately $ 8 million in life insurance policies for the death of his parents and the sales of his home and jewelry, the researchers said.

Authorities said they found ammunition in the defendants' house that coincided with the guts found at the crime scene.

It is unclear what role Edison played, a New Jersey native who was a freshman at Texas A & M, in the alleged killing of gunmen. Police said Edison was calm when talking to investigators, but he broke down when told he would be examined for "residual gunshots," according to KYTX-TV.

The gunman has not been caught yet. Sheriff's spokeswoman Kristen Dark said detectives "are following new leads in the case."

The couple was detained in the Travis County jail. Shaughnessy bail was set at $ 3 million, while Edison's bail was $ 1 million.
