That's according to the medical examiner who completed an autopsy yesterday on the body of Tammy Marie Blair.

Peggy Jo Sullivan was arrested after she allegedly tried to hire an undercover officer to kill her former boyfriend.

The conversation took place in January in the parking lot of a Dublin fast food restaurant.
[SUPER=03-Dublin/January 19;]


That same night, two homemade pipe bombs were found inside Sullivan's pickup truck.
Yesterday's preliminary hearing didn't take long.
Sullivan stipulated the evidence against her was sufficient so the judge merely forwarded the charge to a grand jury.
