An LSU student accused of trying to murder her mother in order to claim inheritance money was transferred from Baton Rouge on Wednesday. Nicole Boover, 19, was booked into Orleans Parish Prison on an attempted first-degree murder charge about 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, jail records show.
Her bail had not been set Wednesday evening.
Boover’s alleged accomplice and fellow LSU student, Nathan Andrew Yuhas, 18, confessed he was anticipating a $50,000 cut of Boover’s inheritance money, according to court documents. The pair had purchased gloves, duct tape and masks similar to those worn by the killers in “Scream” movies, according to an NOPD application for an arrest warrant.
Yuhas allegedly told police that he and Boover intended to leave the state after carrying out the killing, but their murder plot went awry and both he and Boover ended up in custody.
On Monday about 4:30 a.m., authorities say Boover went to her mother’s place in the Esplanade at City Park apartment complex and tapped on the front door. When the mother answered, the daughter allegedly raised a silver-colored handgun.
The mother shut and locked the door immediately, but Boover is accused of firing three shots into the door before fleeing down the hall towards the stairs, investigators believe.
