CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – The widow of a Clarksville businessman shot and killed two years ago is now charged in connection to his murder.

Rebecca Francis Hart, 42, is accused of soliciting her children and others to kill her husband, Gilbert Hart.  She was arrested Friday.

Hart's two children, Rebecca and Alex, and their friend, John Patrick George are accused of carrying out the crime.

Alex Hart pleaded guilty last month to conspiracy to commit murder.

He entered a plea agreement and reportedly gave prosecutors enough evidence to charge his mother.

Gilbert Hart was found shot to death inside his Allensdale Drive home in June of 2009.

Rebecca Francis Hart was booked into the Montgomery County jail on charges of solicitation to commit first degree murder and conspiracy.

Her bond was set at $750,000.  She will be arraigned in September.

A status hearing for her daughter, Rebecca, and JP George is scheduled for next week.
